Murray Darling Basin: work together on water

More than two million Australians live within the Murray-Darling Basin. That’s only about a tenth of Australia’s population, yet this area includes some of our biggest regional centres and accounts for a whopping 40 per cent of all food and fibre grown in Australia. The wheat grown in southern QLD, the cattle grazed in western NSW, the rice farmed in the Riverina and the wine produced in VIC and SA are all part of the Basin – which means all Australians, regardless of where they live, are impacted by what happens here, writes CEO of the National Farmers Federation, Matt Linnegar, on ABC’s The Drum website.
