A submission responding to the Senate Select Committee Inquiry into the social, economic and environmental impacts of the Murray-Darling Basin Plan.

Our submission focuses on ensuring that the Basin Plan is implemented on time and in full, and on the importance of delivering the 450 gigalitres of extra water intended to bring about 'enhanced environmental outcomes' in the Ramsar-listed Coorong, Lower Lakes and Murray Mouth region of South Australia.

The submission also discusses the importance of basing all decisions that relate to the Basin Plan on best-available science and socio-economic analysis, and includes recommendations on developing the evidence base.
