Climate change adaptation in the Murray-Darling Basin: Reducing resilience of wetlands with engineering

Pittock, James; Finlayson, C.M


Conflict over water allocations and the need to adapt to climate change in Australia's Murray-Darling Basin has resulted in decision makers choosing engineering interventions to use water more efficiently for wetlands conservation. We review a range of policy and infrastructure adaptation measures implemented in the Basin by governments. The water supply and demand "environmental works and measures" adopted in the Coorong and Lower Lakes region, as well as along the River Murray, are assessed...[Show more]
