Opinion: We need a national strategy for water

I don't disagree. But you *know* that if the strategy is put forward by the Cons that it will basically sign water over to big business - kind of like oil.

Global warming and climate change pose a threat to our water security: the ability to maintain the quantity and quality of our fresh water. It is becoming increasingly obvious that climate change is wreaking havoc through more frequent and intense floods and droughts. More and more, such catastrophic water-related events are acting as a convincing wake-up call on the urgent need to move seriously on climate change.
