Annual Community Sentiment Survey

Annual Community Sentiment Survey

It’s important to understand the current baseline community sentiment to track and measure our performance and other water management agencies over time. It is also critical to seek an understanding of the drivers behind the sentiment held by various stakeholders in the Basin to address areas where improvements are needed.

The Inspector-General of Water Compliance engaged ORIMA Research to undertake this project. ORIMA is an Australian-owned company with extensive experience in community engagement and research. The research aims to set a baseline of evidence to understand drivers of trust and confidence in water management across the Murray-Darling Basin. This will shape the IGWC’s work to address community needs.

The first Annual Community Sentiment Survey was published in 2023. Find out more about the survey.
