The Wentworth Group welcomes the recent announcement by the Commonwealth Minister for Water, the Hon. Tanya Plibersek of a new agreement with Basin jurisdictions to deliver the Murray-Darling Basin Plan. We welcome the Federal Government taking decisive steps to implement their election commitments to restore the health of the Murray and Darling River systems and deliver their obligations under national and international agreements. As an independent group of experts, we encourage all governments to work in a spirit of cooperation to deliver the Murray-Darling Plan and re-build the trust and dialogue needed to achieve the best outcomes for the community and the river health.
