Draft Report on the Murray-Darling Basin Plan: Five-year assessment

The NFF’s 10 October 2018 submission responds to the Productivity Commission’s draft recommendations to improve the effectiveness of the implementation of the Murray-Darling Basin Plan. These recommendations are critical moving forward into the implementation phase of the Plan. The NFF broadly supports recommendations in the report, but caution is needed to extended deadlines of water resource plans and the supply measures and must be done on a project-by-project basis. The NFF agrees in principle to splitting up the Murray-Darling Basin Authority, but needs to be done quickly without creating transitional inertia that would slow down the implementation process of the Plan.
