Stakeholder engagement

Water is one of our most valuable natural assets. We have a responsibility to the people of NSW to ensure we manage water equitably and transparently now and into the future. Our stakeholders include any community, group or individual who could be interested or affected by our activities.

We recognise that the most effective way to successfully manage water is by collaborating with our stakeholders and the greater community. Our Community Engagement Policy describes how we will complete this engagement.

We will continue to regularly create opportunities to hear from and meet with our stakeholders to build shared understanding, hear insights on water matters, and to provide input on policies, plans, and other relevant documents. An overview of our upcoming meetings, exhibitions, and other public engagement activities is provided below.
