Participants in the course hosted at CQUniversity Melbourne were treated to a real feast of ideas, through the wealth of experience of the presenters - Dr Ian Cordery (Visiting Fellow in the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering at UNSW), Trevor Jacobs (consultant and former senior director operations for Murray Darling Basin Authority) and Charles Lawrence (Uni of Melbourne) - and with extensive interaction and examples throughout the course.

ICE WaRM is an Australian Government initiative implemented by a national consortium of shareholders, supporters and associates.

Partnership is a key feature of the Centre, which recognises that the pursuit of excellence in the increasingly important water resources management sector must be a collaborative task.
