Everyone who uses the waterways of the Murray–Darling Basin benefits from a healthy river environment. From farmers to fishers, tourists to townspeople, healthy rivers keep us fed with high-quality produce, provide recreational and nature-based activities, and promote vibrant rural communities and businesses. They also sustain unique plants, animals and iconic landscapes that are an essential part of the river ecosystem.

Water for the environment is used to improve the health of our rivers, wetlands and floodplains. Water is allocated to federal and state environmental water holders across the Basin, who make decisions about when, where and how much water is released for the environment, and with measurable environmental outcomes in mind.

During this webinar you will learn more about why the environment needs water, how water for the environment is allocated and delivered, the importance for improving river health, the roles and responsibilities of the MDBA and other agencies and the progress and outcomes achieved so far.
