Riversymposium promotes the exchange of ideas, knowledge and technology between industry, science, community and environmental organisations regarding rivers and waterways. This year's theme is 'Rivers from Source to Sea'.

Looking after our rivers involves grappling with complex challenges of water resources management every day. The managers of our rivers are responding to climate change and water reform while continuing to seek to secure water supply for rural and urban use and protect river health.

Achieving the right balance into the future will require the development of options and decision-making that is strongly informed by repeatable and transparent science.

eWater is partnering with governments, industry and the research sector to develop a national eco-hydrology modelling platform for water resource planning and operation which works across jurisdictions and accounts for the full water cycle.
