The United States and Australia face many similar environmental issues. EPA’s current cooperation with Australia primarily focuses on on water issues.
In February 2016, U.S. EPA and the Australian Department of Agriculture and Water Resources signed a Memorandum of Understanding on Water Cooperation. This was an update to the March 2011 Memorandum of Understanding on the same topic. Discussions also take place under the framework of the U.S.-Australia Science &Technology (S&T) Agreement.
