Murray–Darling Water and Environment Research Program (MD-WERP)

The Murray–Darling Water and Environment Research Program is a 4-year, $20 million Australian Government initiative to strengthen scientific knowledge of the Murray–Darling Basin through generating new knowledge, innovation and tools across the themes of:

  • climate adaptation
  • hydrology
  • environmental outcomes
  • social, economic and cultural outcomes.

MD-WERP also assists the Australian Government in addressing Basin Plan objectives and responding to emerging issues by investing in short-term, tactical projects.

Commonwealth partners (Department of Climate Change, Energy, the Environment and Water, Commonwealth Environmental Water Holder, and Murray–Darling Basin Authority) is collaborating with a research consortium to deliver research that will benefit the Basin and its communities for years to come.
