Thursday, March 10th, 2016 - Waterfind

On March 10, Waterfind released a report providing commentary on the evolution of Queensland water markets at the Agribusiness Association of Australia’s event, of which Waterfind is a State sponsor.

Waterfind found that whilst having matured significantly over the last 5 years, QLD markets are still 3-5 years behind the more developed Australian markets. In this report we have provided an overview of the QLD water markets and highlighted two key areas where market maturation efforts are likely to have a sizeable and immediate positive impact, these are:

  1. Improving the quality of water market information, and especially transparency of water trading prices;
  2. Maturing trading processes toward quicker, more efficient, and almost instantaneous transactions

Waterfind believes that the implementation of these actions and the maturation of QLD water markets will be essential toward meeting the state’s goal of doubling food and fibre production by 2040 (outlined in QLD’s agriculture strategy: A 2040 vision to double the value of production).
