Constraints management strategy

At the request of Basin ministers, the MDBA was commissioned to produce a constraints management strategy.

The Basin governments collectively recognise that governments — with people who live and work in the Basin — can manage the system better to get the best use of the available water. This recognition led to the MDBA being asked, under the Basin Plan, to develop a strategy which ‘identifies and describes the physical, operational and management constraints that are affecting environmental water delivery'.

The work we have carried out to prepare this strategy is a continuation of the joint efforts which have been made by Basin governments and communities over the past decades. Substantial investment of both knowledge and funding has been made by individuals, communities and governments to maintain and restore the health of the rivers. We have been entrusted to build on their considerable achievements.
