The National Irrigators’ Council (NIC) is the voice of irrigators across Australia.
It aims to develop projects and policies to ensure the efficiency, viability and sustainability of Australian irrigated agriculture and the security and reliability of water entitlements and to promote those projects and policies with a view to having them adopted or ratified by governments, statutory authorities and other groups and organisations.
The NIC was created in 2008 to represent the interests of irrigation entitlement holders across Australia.
Our policy is determined by members and underpinned by our Guiding Principles and the objectives in our Strategic Plan. Strategic and policy documents are developed by the organisation through debate and resolution by members at the three general meetings of Council each year.
