Waterproofing homelands – Kimberley water strategy



The project piloted a strategy to address core determinants of ongoing water system failure. The aim was to build capacity within communities to protect their water supply quantity and quality, and to measure and evaluate progress and replication of the approach. Primary funding for the project was confirmed through the Department of Family and Community Services and Indigenous Affairs.
