Investment in water infrastructure is critical to our environmental and economic wellbeing into the future. Water and wastewater projects will be speedily progressed across the country. A major priority is a new water supply source for the Eastern and Midland Region.

Capacity will continue to be built in waste facilities, including anaerobic digestion, hazardous waste treatment, plastics processing, recycling, waste to energy, and landfill and landfill remediation, to meet future waste objectives.

Waste efficiency will deliver economic benefits and will lower the environmental impact of food production and consumption.

See National Strategic Outcome 9 of the National Development Plan 2018-2027 for the full detail.
