Update 2016-10-06: Due to unforeseen circumstances we have had to cancel this presentation at the last minute.  We will attempt to reschedule this in 2017.

The Murray Darling Basin Plan guides governments, regional authorities and communities to sustainably manage and use the waters of the Basin. The Plan came into effect in November 2012, and it will be reviewed and revised throughout a 7 year implementation phase.

After the very informative Q&A style debate that was held by the Water Engineering Panel back in November 2010 in relation to the merits of the then draft Plan, we invite you to attend this talk from the Chief Executive of the Murray Darling Basin Authority, Mr Phillip Glyde who will provide an update on the progress that has been made in rolling out the Plan in the last 4 years.
