DEG was introduced to the Stockholm International Water Institute by Yuwaya Ngarrali collaborator, Professor Greg Leslie
who is the Director of the Global Water Institute of UNSW. We are developing a relationship with this Institute with the aim of generating international attention to the appalling management of water in the Northern Murray Darling basin and particularly Walgett. We have submitted an essay for a SIWI publication which we look forward to sharing with you as we believe it provides a good overview of DEG’s current thinking regarding water policy #WaterIsLife! DEG Elders have begun to meet with other indigenous nations’ water leaders and activists who have also contributed essays to the same publication.
