The 8th Australian Stream Management Conference will be held in the Blue Mountains, New South Wales from Sunday, 31st July to Wednesday, 3rd August 2016.

Twenty years on from the inaugural Australian Stream Management Conference in 1996, the 2016 event will provide the opportunity to reflect on our progress over two decades.  We will discuss recent developments and challenges in stream management, in the context of experiences from the past two decades and beyond.  The conference is relevant to anybody involved in any aspect of the management of streams, rivers, wetlands and estuaries in Australia or beyond.   Focus areas will include the role of physical interventions, catchment and riparian management, environmental flows, community involvement and expectations, government policy, the role of markets, and the management of droughts and floods, and monitoring and evaluation programs. 

Practitioners, professionals, community leaders, policy analysts and academics are invited to submit an abstract and/or register for the Conference. The 8ASM Conference is being convened by the River Basin Management Society with support from the Integrated Catchment Management Foundation.

We look forward to seeing you in 2016!

Mark Stacey and Johanna Slijkerman
8th Australian Stream Management Conference Co-Chairs
