A central element of the Town Water Risk Reduction Program is a partnership approach which aims to recognise and leverage the wealth of expertise within councils, local water utilities and relevant government agencies. The team will utilise the Stakeholder Advisory Panel (the Panel) to advise, help design, facilitate and refine the program and to identify broader engagement opportunities.
The purpose of the Panel is to be a forum for key sector stakeholders and regulators to:
- sense-check the Program’s scope, approach and progress
- provide direction and feedback on the Program’s strategic approach, risks and overall engagement approach as well as high-level policy issues
- be a sounding board for the Program team on issues that cannot be resolved in more focused stakeholder working groups, e.g. because they raise higher-level policy questions, are sensitive or relate to multiple focus areas
- provide advice to the Program team regarding policy and technical issues that the more focused stakeholder working groups should consider.

The Program offers opportunities for collaboration and design through a range of workshops, focus teams and working groups which are being established to address the Program focus areas. Further information about collaboration opportunities for interested stakeholders email email@example.com.
