NFF welcomes new appointment to MDBA

The National Farmers’ Federation (NFF) has today welcomed the appointment of Ms Susan Madden to the Murray Darling Basin Authority (MDBA).
NFF Water Taskforce Chair, Les Gordon, said Ms Madden brought not only her more recent experience in the irrigation sector to the MDBA, but also many years of working with natural resource management groups and communities across the Basin to resolve complex natural resource challenges.
“We also congratulate Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce and the MDBA Ministerial Council Ministers for their decision to appoint Ms Madden,” Mr Gordon said.
“The next few years are a very important time in the implementation of the Basin Plan and we are pleased to see the value of real world experience being applied to this process has been recognised.
“The NFF is hopeful that with Susan’s appointment, together with that of MDBA CEO Phillip Glyde, the Authority will recognise the social and economic impacts that the Basin reforms are having on our communities, and give these considerations the right level of focus.
