- diverting about 524,728 tonnes of salt from the River Murray
- working with Aboriginal communities and advisory groups on Use-and-Occupancy Mapping, and to develop cultural, social and economic indicators.
The report also presents the MDBA’s audited financial statements and accountability requirements.
