Effective monitoring and evaluation of the Basin Plan will be critical to ensuring its objectives are achieved.
The South Australian Government is required to contribute to this evaluation by collecting, analysing and reporting data and information on activities and outcomes relating to our Basin Plan obligations, including reporting on the environmental watering plan, water quality and salinity, water trading rules and water resource planning.
The government reports both annually and five yearly to the Murray-Darling Basin Authority. Visit the MDBA’s website for copies of the Authority’s Basin Plan annual reports.
Under the monitoring and evaluation program, the MDBA will
- report annually on the effectiveness of the Basin Plan
- undertake reviews of the environmental watering plan and water quality and salinity management plan targets
- advise on Basin Plan social, economic and environmental impacts after the first five years of implementation
- review the Basin Plan on a regular basis.
Visit the Murray-Darling Basin Authority for more information on Basin Plan monitoring and evaluation.
