Wakool Edwards Strong Communities Initiative (WESCI) represents the interests of the Wakool Edwards Region within the former Wakool Shire boundary of the Shire of Murray.
In May to August 2016, the Murray-Darling Basin Authority Initiated Water Community workshops as part of a research project aimed at improving community adaptability to water management changes. The Wakool Shire was selected to take part in this research project as the region was identified as being heavily affected by the water reform process.
At the completion of the final Water Community workshop, community leaders identified the need to form a community organisation to address the impact of structural changes to water policy in the Murray Darling Basin (MDB) and regional characteristics of low population, low rainfall and a high reliance on irrigation for revenue, and WESCI was formed.
