The Goyder Institute Strategic Research Plan details the long-term strategic outcomes for a research program that will help ensure the water resources of the State of South Australia are sustainably managed for economic, social and environmental benefits. The Strategic Research Plan links ongoing and proposed research projects to the strategic outcomes through Roadmaps.
The Strategic Research Plan is guided by a number of policy and implementation documents and agreements, which include the Natural Resources Management Act 2004, the National Water Initiative Intergovernmental Agreement, Water for Good and the Water Act 2007 (Federal legislation). It is also complementary to the water allocation and natural resources management planning frameworks of the Natural Resources Management (NRM) Boards. The Program is cognisant of industry and community aspirations for state water resources management that is both transparent and provides certainty.
