Research plans update
After months of co-design, the draft research plans for the four themes were submitted to the Governing Panel in early June. Most of the plans are now being finalised by the Commonwealth to confirm the priorities for 2021-22. This means research can begin for some projects this month.
Some of the research projects are still under development, including research focused on improving the cultural, economic and social outcomes for First Nations people.
The research plans have been shared and discussed with a broad range of users during development. The plans will also be reviewed annually, and ongoing co-design will ensure the research will deliver the expected outcomes and benefits for the Murray–Darling Basin.
