Managing The Murray-Darling Basin: Some Implications For Climate Change Policy

Author

  • JOHN QUIGGIN

Abstract

Among the many environmental problems facing Australia, the problems of managing the Murray-Darling Basin and of responding to climate change are notable for their complexity, intractability and for the wide range of people and regions affected. Consideration of policy successes and failures in the management of the Murray-Darling Basin may help in the design of a more effective, and cost-effective, response to the problem of climate change
