Murray–Darling Basin Authority

he Murray–Darling Basin Authority's principal aim is to manage the Basin's water resources in the national interest.The establishment of the MDBA means that, for the first time, a single agency is now responsible for planning integrated management of the water resources of the Murray–Darling Basin. In December 2008, MDBA assumed responsibility for all of the functions of the former Murray–Darling Basin Commission.

The Authority is made up of six members who are supported by an office of around 300 staff. The Ministerial Council and theBasin Officials Committee play important roles in providing advice and making high level decisions relating to the functions of the MDBA.
