February Civic Ledger News

It’s been a huge start to 2022 for Civic Ledger. We’ve achieved a number of “firsts” not just for us, but for the entire blockchain industry. Here is the round up.

Scaling Blockchain Water Markets in North Queensland

The world’s first water markets on blockchain will go live later this year as a result of a partnership with the Cooperative Research Centre for Developing Northern Australia (CRCNA), Inclusive Growth Partners, FNQ Growers and Civic Ledger.

The launch of Water Ledger in the MDWSS water catchment will onboard more than 1000 growers and water users to the water accounting on blockchain platform.

Making Choices About Water launched online

In partnership with Cynefin Centre Australia, the Making Choices About Water webinar that included water sovereignty expert Dr Erin O’Donnell, Indigenous water justice advocate Professor Anne Poelina, and Civic Ledger’s Katrina Donaghy now has a dedicated space online.

The showcase features a synthesis of the ideas presented, resources, transcript, and of course the video replay available online for free.

The hope is to enable a new generation of water, governance, and finance professionals to draw on a common language to accelerate water justice and the adoption of regenerative practices in water management that are inclusive for all.
