Basin Plan Evaluation findings

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

The Murray–Darling Basin Authority has undertaken further social and economic work to understand the contribution of the Basin Plan to the outcomes in irrigation-dependent communities. This research is similar to the work done for the Northern Basin Review and separates the effect of Basin Plan water recovery from the other drivers of change affecting Basin communities. The findings of this work were released in May and June 2018.
