Minister Lisa Neville will outline the development of the state government’s water policy and the framework for optimising the state’s water grid to deliver better economic, social and environmental outcomes for the community.

The Victorian Government is currently working on a new water plan to optimise the state’s water grid and supply options. CEDA welcomes Water Minister, the Hon. Lisa Neville to outline new developments in the water policy framework to deliver better economic, social and environmental outcomes for the community.

With many of the state’s regions experiencing drought conditions and water shortages in 2015, renewed attention has been given to the state’s water infrastructure, management, efficiency and supply options, including the possibility of using the Wonthaggi Desalination Plant to augment the state’s water supply.

Lisa is the Minister for Environment and Climate Change in the Victorian State Parliament. Under the previous Labor Government, Lisa served as the Minister for Mental Health, the first in Australia, and as Minister for Community Services and Senior Victorians from 2006-2010. Lisa is determined to raise the profile of environmental issues, vital to the future of Victoria and the nation.

Her work prior to being elected was in the community sector, including as Manager of the SpringDale Neighbourhood Centre in Drysdale, President of the Board of Barwon Health and Chairperson of the Barwon Network of Neighbourhood Houses. Lisa Neville was elected as the Member for Bellarine in 2002.

The lunch will be held on 16 March 2016 at the Park Hyatt, 1 Parliament Square, Melbourne.
