Managing the MDBA’s Remote Sensing Needs
CRCSI has just released a report finding that there is significant potential for remote sensing and related technologies to play a greater role in the Murray Darling Basin Authority’s operations. In many cases this would provide a more cost-effective, efficient and transparent means of achieving specific agencies business and information needs.
The Murray Darling Basin Authority (MDBA) was established under the federal Water Act 2007 to support the sustainable and integrated management of the water resources of the Murray-Darling Basin in a way that best meets the social, economic and environmental needs of the Basin and its communities. The MDBA leads the planning and management of Basin water resources, and coordinates and maintains collaborative long-term strategic relations with other federal, state and local government agencies; industry groups; scientists and research organisations.
