Congratulations go to Ruth Morgan (project A2.1) for winning a Western Australian Premier’s Book Award for her book “Running Out? Water in Western Australia”.
In her book, Ruth discusses the past Western Australian fascination with lush green gardens that sits at odds with the region’s mainly desert landscape. This environmental history perspective of our cities offers a new understanding of the past and questions the way we approach an uncertain future in a drying climate.
Running Out? Water in Western Australia is published by UWA Publishing.
