CSIRO cuts to water science will guarantee Australia cannot manage its most valuable resource

In a world heading for a major water crisis, CSIRO cuts to water science will guarantee Australia cannot manage its most valuable resource into the future, says Bruce Haigh. 
WATER IS VITAL for a sustainable future, particularly in Australia. To survive – and therefore for all of us to survive – water needs all the care and compassion it can get. Not so in Australia.
