ANU’s Centre for Water Economics, Environment and Policy (CWEEP)’s mission is to become a leading research centre on water economics and related water policy and water governance issues; and to be part of a global network of water researchers, educators and policy makers to support water education, to strengthen water governance and to promote environmental sustainability. CWEEP is pronounced ‘sweep,’ as in to survey so as to obtain a whole and continuous view of the world. As the acronym implies this centre has a key goal to have a wider and holistic perspective of the world in terms of water so that we can see better and further and to respond to water-related problems.
