Productivity Commission issues paper on National Water Reform

The NFF’s 27 April 2017 submission highlighted the importance of secure water property rights back by a robust statutory water entitlement framework to underpin investment in irrigated agriculture. The submission highlights that this is not yet universal for all water users, and continued effort is required from states and territories to deliver this. The submission highlights key areas for future reform, including more transparent water pricing, reconsideration of the governance and planning of environmental water and robust business cases for investment in water infrastructure.
