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 are those groups and individuals who could be 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 regularly meet with our stakeholders on key projects, and provide opportunities for stakeholders and the broader public 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.
