Summary "Water Resources Law, 2nd edition is a book about over the past twenty years Australian parliaments have undertaken a national program of fundamental law reform about water resources law to address the competing interests of humans and our ecosystems. The resultant state and territory legislation is the product of the most significant reforms since water resources statutes were first enacted over a century ago. The Commonwealth Parliament has entered the field of water resource management and, with the support of some state-referred legislative powers, has enacted a framework for the national oversight of water resources management . The authors explain in practical terms how the new water resources legislation seeks to implement the national reform policies. Completely reviewed and updated to include areas such as the emergence of water markets, the 2013 Intergovernmental Agreement on Implementing Water Reform in the Murray-Darling Basin, and the future of National Water Policy, this second edition of Water Resources Law is an invaluable resource for practitioners, academics, environmentalists, students and anyone interested in tracing the legal history and policy development of these reforms." - Publisher's website.
