#BeyondBuybacks calls on the government to move away from a “just add water” management approach for the Murray-Darling Basin, and instead to engage in integrated catchment water management. We need complementary measures achieved in partnerships with private landholders, including irrigators, to tackle the greatest environmental threats to the Basin.
Have you ever wondered what food and fibre is produced by NSW irrigators? Or how climate change affects farming practices? Or how the irrigators keep a track of how much water they use? You’ve come to the right place, find out more about irrigation here!
Find out how irrigators and irrigation infrastructure operators work as environmental stewards alongside environmental water holders, scientists, First Nations and others to implement sustainable agricultural practices integrated with biodiversity, conservation and climate change initiatives.
