About the Trust

With the support of its donors and sponsors, the Trust delivers programs that develop leaders who improve Australia’s water and environment management. The Trust is not politically aligned and is neither an advocate nor a lobbying organisation. Through developing leaders in the water sector and raising the level of discourse – by facilitating, convening and enabling – the Trust empowers others to be effective communicators and advocates.
