The Goyder Institute for Water Research will receive $8 million from the Australian Government over 4 years from 2022–23 to work with communities to investigate the impacts of climate change on the Coorong, Lower Lakes and Murray Mouth (CCLLM) region.
The grant includes funding for a Research Centre based in Goolwa, South Australia, and a planned research program.
First Nations, the local community, governments, and researchers will work together to improve scientific knowledge to inform management of the internationally significant CLLMM region.
Research from the program will:
- develop knowledge to inform future management actions
- support community wellbeing
- enhance the long-term prosperity of the CLLMM region
- establish the CLLMM region as a world leader in sustainable management of wetlands
- develop nationally and internationally recognised water research leaders in South Australia
- engage the local community in science to address future challenges for the region.
