Dear Sir or Madame,


In the context of a current research project called WaterNeeds at the University of Osnabrück (Germany) we kindly ask you to contribute to our research by completing the online survey.



The main objective of this survey is to better understand water resources management in New South Wales (Murrumbidgee). Key aspects of the survey are:

  • General questions related to water resources management (e.g. objectives, cooperation structures, conflicts between user groups)
  • Dealing with climate change risks and uncertainties (floods and droughts)


Your expertise

The survey addresses experts in the field of water resources management (e.g. administrative bodies, water boards, environmental agencies, researchers). Due to your expertise you contribute to new insights and a better understanding of complex water management settings and therefore, supporting the improvement of future water management.


The completion of the survey takes 15-20 minutes. You can find the survey under the following link: Survey. After finalizing and submitting the survey we receive the results. Herewith, we expressly inform you that we preserve the anonymity of your information.


We kindly ask you to forward this e-mail to all persons and colleagues who might be interested in completing the survey.


If desired, we are happy to inform you about our research results.
