Maximising benefits of environmental flows through adaptive management

June 9 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Webinar University of Melbourne

Environmental water is critical for improving Australia’s freshwater systems. But maximising the benefits from this water can be difficult as environmental responses to watering are often poorly understood. Adaptive management is a process for improving the effectiveness of natural resource management by learning from experience and using current knowledge to inform decision making. Multiple iterations of a ‘plan, do, learn’ cycle can lead to improved decisions and environmental outcomes. Adaptive management is mandatory under the Murray-Darling Basin Plan, with several…
