Developing northern Australia remains a topic of interest, especially following the recent federal election, which returned (just) a coalition government.
On election night, Barnaby Joyce used his victory speech to remind voters that electing the coalition meant building new dams in Queensland in particular, and a commitment to developing water resources across northern Australia.
I've written about this issue in The Conversation a couple of times already this year, and the latest article caught the attention of Radio National's Counterpoint presenter Amanda Vanstone. She interviewed me on Monday about water resource management in northern Australia, and the importance of sustainable water planning.

I will be watching with interest as the new federal government releases post-election policies on water resource development in northern Australia.
