Publication of Research Outputs
The Catalogue and summaries of all WSAA research reports may be viewed on this website. Full copies of WSAA Research Reports may be purchased via the WSAA website. However, WSAA stopped being a purely research organisation around 2001. Since then various reports, based on outputs from research projects but not called research reports, have been published and can be found under the Publications section listed as Position and Occasional Papers. A fee is payable for any downloads of the above, although Position Papers, which deal with national policy on key water issues, may be downloaded for free from the WSAA website.
