The Goyder Institute

 

Our research is saving South Australia’s most precious resource to make sure there is enough water for everyone. We’re collaborating with top scientists and researchers around Australia to find new ways of saving, accessing and delivering water.  The outcome will be a better future for you and all South Australians.

The recent Millenium Drought clearly exposed the increased threat to the security of water supplies for communities, industry and the environment. South Australia's future economic growth and resilience is dependent on the provision of sustainable water supplies under a variable and changing climate.

This vital importance of water to the quality of life and the economic interests of the people of South Australia was recognised by the South Australian Government in establishing the Goyder Institute for Water Research in July 2010 and the development of a $50 million, 5-year strategic research plan.  Following a successful five years, the Institute's term was extended in the 2015-2016 State Budget for a further four years.

The Goyder Institute for Water Research is a partnership between the South Australian Government through the Department of Environment, Water and Natural Resources, CSIRO, Flinders University, the University of Adelaide and the University of South Australia.

Since 2010, the Goyder Institute has established itself as an independent expert science advisor providing quality, evidence based knowledge on water management issues important for South Australia.

The Goyder Institute is committed to delivering the scientific knowledge needed for independent expert water management advice. This will ensure the Institute informs policy and decision-making, identifies future threats to water security and assists in an integrated approach to water management in South Australia and beyond.
