Australia is currently undergoing a process of water management reform, where the ways in which water is used across the country are being re-evaluated. It is anticipated that rural communities will be affected by this process as allocation systems are changed and refined. It is essential that the potential impacts on rural communities are understood, monitored and evaluated as these changes are developed and implemented. A robust social assessment approach is required to understand and assist with change in rural areas that may be affected by changes in water access.
