International Cooperation

Memorandums of Understanding with Australia

EPA’s Principal Deputy Assistant Administrator for International and Tribal Affairs, Jane Nishida, and Australian Department of Agriculture and Water Resources First Assistant Secretary, Tony Slatyer, at MOU signing. Australia, a key U.S. ally, is an important environmental partner for EPA in the Asia Pacific Region and faces many similar environmental issues that we face in the U.S.  EPA’s current cooperation with Australia primarily focuses on water cooperation and sharing of lessons learned in areas of key environmental concern.

In February 2016, U.S. EPA and the Australian Department of Agriculture and Water Resources signed a Memorandum of Understanding on Water.  This was an update to the March 2011 Memorandum of Understanding on the same topic. Both documents are available below.
