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 2015 to 30 June 2016 and was completed on 31 October 2016.
