National Partnership Agreement on Implementing Water Reform in the Murray–Darling Basin: milestone assessment reports

​​Implementing water reform

The Intergovernmental Agreement on Implementing Water Reform in the Murray-Darling Basin (IGA) is an undertaking by the Australian Government and Murray–Darling Basin state governments to implement water reforms that further improve the Basin’s health and secure a future for its communities.

Providing financial support

As part of the IGA the Australian Government commits to providing financial support to the Basin states through the National Partnership Agreement on Implementing Water Reform in the Murray-Darling Basin (NPA).

About the report

Under the NPA, each Basin state is implementing the reforms in accordance with the milestones set out in the agreement, and is reporting on milestone progress through an annual ‘statement of assurance’. The Department of Agriculture and Water Resources is responsible for the assessment of the Basin states’ progress against these milestones. The department’s most recent assessment evaluates milestone progress made by Basin states during 1 July 2016 to 30 June 2017, for financial contributions due to be paid in 2017-18. The assessment report is available for download. Also available for download are details of the payments made under the NPA to Basin states since the NPA commenced.
