Chris Guest is a career public servant and economist with a long held interest and experience in water policy and politics, an involvement that grew as governments sought to tackle the problems of over-allocation of water. He brings a great deal of insight into the pattern of the history of Basin politics and how it helps us interpret some of the current debate and conflict over water. The 2019 Mann Lecture will adopt a conversational format, hosted by Dr Nick Bond from La Trobe's Centre for Freshwater Ecosystems.
