Basin Plan timeline
We are working collaboratively to implement the Basin Plan.
While the Basin Plan provides a framework for implementation, working with Basin states (Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia and the Australian Capital Territory), Basin communities and key stakeholders is crucial in achieving a sustainable Basin system.
Continued involvement from Basin communities during implementation to provide input and feedback helps the MDBA to adapt the approach and ensure the Basin can continue to support communities, the environment and industry.
The Basin Plan is being implemented over the next 7 years to allow time for Basin states, communities and the Australian Government to work together to manage the changes required for a healthy working Basin.
