The framework

We’ve produced the Integrated Water Management Framework for Victoria to help us all - government, the community and the water sector - work together to plan, manage and deliver water in Victoria’s towns and cities.

Our goal is to deliver greater community value. The Framework shows how we can do this through consistent and strategic collaboration within the water sector – including water corporations, local governments and catchment management authorities – and through their links with organisations involved in land use planning. The approach in the Framework works with and feeds into existing water and land planning processes.

An Australian first: this is the first time that the systematic application of collaborative integrated water management has been designed and promoted at a state-wide scale in an Australian context and the Victorian Government looks forward to working with the water sector to implement it.
