CSIRO’s Northern Australia Sustainable Yields (NASY) project provides critical information on historical, recent and likely future water availability in a part of Australia that is renowned for its high rainfall, pristine tropical environments and relatively low development.

This information will help governments, industry and communities consider the environmental, social and economic aspects of the sustainable use and management of the water assets of Northern Australia.

Funded by the National Water Commission, the project resulted from a March 2008 decision by the Council of Australian Governments for a comprehensive scientific assessment of water yield in all major water systems across the country.
