Australian Water Research Access Portal now live

WSAA has recently announced the launch of the new Water Research Access Portal (WRAP). The WRAP project is a collaborative effort between a number of Australian research centres, government agencies, water utilities and industry, and is being managed by the Water Services Association of Australia. 

In Australia, substantial investment has been made into urban water research, however accessing this growing bank of information and knowledge has always been a challenge as it is spread across many websites, organisations and libraries. WRAP is an online 'database' which makes Australian urban water research readily accessible. It pulls the research together via a powerful search functionality built on themes of national importance. You can trail through the information by themes or search the 'database' using keywords. The information includes:

  • Primary research: reports, publications, frameworks, etc.
  • Learnings from research: grey literature such as case studies, conference papers, communication pieces, news articles, project evaluations, policy analysis etc.
  • Tools of the trade: links to access methodologies, models, data

In addition, WRAP also has the ability to store research (which might not be published elsewhere), ensuring there is no loss of knowledge from the sector.
