Economic Effects of Water Recovery on Irrigated Agriculture in the Murray-Darling Basin

Grafton, R Quentin; Jiang, Qiang


In October 2010, the Murray-Darling Basin Authority (MDBA) proposed that a range of 3000-4000 GL per year, on average, of additional water be made available for the environment in the Murray-Darling Basin (MDB) to mitigate the effects of what it considers to be inadequate environmental flows. To help quantify the costs of this water reallocation, a hydro-economic model was constructed based on the 19 regions of the MDB. The model results indicate the following: (i) substantial reductions in...[Show more]
