Highlights and Case Studies

The Queensland Water Regional Alliance Program (QWRAP) is about individual local governments forming sustainable regional collaboration for water and sewerage services. Collaborative projects and activities are encouraged through partial funding to create economies of scale and respond to common challenges by pooling resources (people, money and expertise). Funding is available through a competitive bid pool prioritised on criteria that demonstrate a region’s increasing collaboration maturity.
