Amanda brings over 20 years of experience working in natural resource and waterway management, primarily across south-eastern Australia. She is currently using this experience to provide evaluation advice and project support to the team on contract.
This follows the completion of Amanda’s secondment with Watertrust at end of 2023, where she led the development of the Watertrust evaluation framework. Amanda is continuing to support the implementation of our monitoring and evaluation work.
She is fascinated with how people use information and knowledge to make decisions in water and catchment management, and combines her technical expertise with strong facilitation and engagement skills to develop and implement strategic, agreed programs for the waterway management industry.
In 2018, Amanda led Alluvium Consulting's contribution to a study funded by The Ian Potter Foundation and The Myer Foundation that identified ways philanthropic investment might help improve the management of Australia’s freshwater resources. This study informed the establishment of Watertrust Australia.
Amanda works for Alluvium and continues to provide support to the Watertrust team as required.
