Queensland Water Strategy - Water. Our Life Resource

Water powers our people, planet and economic success in a decarbonised world. It supports industry and jobs, the food we eat, and the world around us. Water will become even more vital as we prepare for climate change impacts, a growing population, and newer industries like hydrogen and critical minerals. 

Caring for water means we need to use it wisely, make sure our water is secure and affordable. Sustainable and secure water resources are the key focus of the draft Queensland Water Strategy (the Strategy). It outlines the vision and actions that will guide us over the next five years. Read it on our website and give feedback by 3 October 2023 using the survey link below.
