WITLI - Water in the Landscape Initiative

This collaboration is called “The Upper-Namoi Water in the Landscape Initiative”, and may be referred to as the “WITLI”. Its purpose is to develop and facilitate collaborative projects, programs or initiatives to optimise economic, social and environmental value and sustainability of freshwater in upper-Namoi catchments, (roughly 250 metres or more above sea-level).

The Upper-Namoi Water in the Landscape Initiative is to be community (rather than expert or politician) led. The principal stakeholders are non-government landholder organisations, rural communities, and rural industries, and the University of New England as a provider of knowledge and supports, and as a stakeholder in research and other opportunities which may arise from WITLI activities. Local Governments, State or National Government agencies with a concern for the interests of the principal stakeholders may fully participate in this initiative. This statement is intentionally broad. The first general meeting of the entity shall happen between March 1st 2024 and April 30th 2024 at which the signatories may decide whether it should be replaced, amended or retained.

Wallabadah, what have we learnt about our water

Join us for a morning of reflection and learning as we revisit the outcomes of water and water related land management initiatives undertaken in our community since 2018, with the support and assistance of Local Land Services, DPI, UNE and other technical experts, including Martin O’Rourke. The focus of this event will be on what we have learned and what we can do about improving our future water security as a community and as landholders.

Our members often say that when you become part of Landcare, you’re not just joining a group, you’re becoming part of a family. The concept is so compatible with Australian culture it’s hard not to get involved! By becoming a TRLA member, you’ll be supporting our work, learning new skills, becoming part of the solution, and helping to make a difference for the future.
