Basin Plan Evaluation findings

The 2017 Basin Plan Evaluation took into account proposed amendments to the Basin Plan. Please be aware these amendments have been disallowed.  For more information read the media release.

The Basin Plan Evaluation has considered a range of information and data in making its assessment of the Basin Plan. The Evaluation covers environmental, social, cultural and economic outcomes seen so far, and whether these outcomes are in line with what was expected five years ago.

Due to the necessary data only just becoming available, the Murray–Darling Basin Authority is undertaking further social and economic work to understand the contribution of the Basin Plan to the outcomes in irrigation-dependent communities. This work will be released in April 2018.
