Realise the Water Opportunity

To sustainably capture the full potential value of the Great South Coast’s underutilised water resource

The Great South Coast receives reliable rainfall for consistent growing seasons and has access to abundant groundwater supplies. These groundwater assets represent significant potential to grow the value of the food and fibre sector through a smarter approach to agricultural water use. Our aim is to capture the full potential of the Great South Coast’s water resources through sustainable management of ground and surface water, fit-for-purpose licensing arrangements and more effective draining systems.

FFGSC has been building community, social licence and consensus on water policy matters since our founding. Our policy positions are endorsed by water stakeholders across the region and research shows they could result in over $40m of additional value spread evenly across the regional economy.
