About the document
Agriculture and Resource Management Council of Australia and New Zealand (ARMCANZ) and Australian and New Zealand Environment and Conservation Council (ANZECC) have jointly developed a set of National Principles for the Provision of Water for Ecosystems.
The purpose of these National Principles is to provide policy direction on how the specific issue of water for the environment should be dealt with in the context of general water allocation decisions. These Principles, in themselves, are not a framework for water allocation. They are one input to a much broader process that will consider all users in the mechanism of water allocation.
