Governance, regulations, finance, and culture are often cited as barriers to achieving integrated water management and innovation in water technologies. In an effort to clarify and explain these barriers, WRF, WERF, and Water Research Australia undertook this study to define those barriers. Three in-depth case studies and 25 snapshot case studies provide practical examples of how agencies and communities worked through institutional barriers so they could practice a more integrated and sustainable approach to water resource management. Case studies looked at initiatives and interactions between different levels of government, private entities, NGOs, and citizens across a range of institutional barriers. In addition to the research report (4487a), a Guidebook (4487b) was developed to help utilities take actions to move forward on the path to One Water. Project partners: WERF and Water Quality Research Australia. Published in 2015.
