Peer Review of the Australian Environmental Water Report
Client: National Water Commission
DG Consulting was contracted by the National Water Commission to conduct a peer review of the Australian Environmental Water Report being prepared to set out the status of environmental water management and reporting within all jurisdictions as at 30 June 2010. The report follows on from findings in the Commission’s 2009 Biennial Assessment, is to promote better understanding of environmental water management, and provide a clear, agreed baseline for future reference.
The peer review is to identify any significant issues with the conceptual basis on which the report is based, help ensure internal consistency, identify any gaps in content or analysis, and to help ensure that the report is logically structured, clearly written and precisely explained. This involves respecting information provided by jurisdictions, analysing draft reports, drawing on personal experience with and knowledge of environmental water management and reporting, and providing clear and insightful comment and suggestions as appropriate.
