Abstract

The AA. investigate the ecologically sustainable development dimensions of Melbourne's Central Region sustainable water strategy. First, they demonstrate that the importance of issues such as environmental flows, social equity and cultural values is diminished, thus avoiding the inevitable confrontation with environmental limits needed to ensure long-term ecological sustainability. Then, their findings suggest that broadening engagement with the diverse ways in which water is valued is likely to contribute to more equitable and ecologically sustainable water futures
