17th International River Symposium, Canberra

Date: 

Monday, 15 September 2014 (All day) to Wednesday, 17 September 2014 (All day)

International River SymposiumThe 17th International River symposium has an overarching theme of ‘Large River Basins’. There is hardly a better location to hold this conference than in Canberra in the Murray-Darling Basin – where much of Australia’s A$13 billion water reform implementation and large basin planning has occurred since 2007. Sharing the experiences and some world-leading innovations will be a great back-drop to this event.
