The Wentworth Group is dedicated to water and land policy reform to protect Australia’s critical environments. We are composed of eminent scientists who are a trusted source of independent, non-government advice on issues related to water and land policy. We focus on solution-based policy reforms, which are of significant national interest.
The Group has a proven track record since 2002 of influencing legislative reform to improve environmental outcomes for water resources, biological diversity and natural landscapes.
Our members promote science-based solutions to achieve the following outcomes:
- Water – Sound policy underpinned by robust science to maintain the health of our rivers, wetlands and people.
- Land – A healthy landscape that supports rural communities and allows life in the unique Australian bush to flourish.
- Biodiversity – Stewardship of our environment to conserve our rich and diverse species of flora and fauna.
