Mildura Forum: The Australia Institute's Murray Darling Research


Join The Australia Institute to discuss their latest research and report, Trickle Out Effect, which shows the $13 billion dollar Murray Darling Basin Plan is facilitating the flow of money to powerful agribusiness at the expense of local communities, native title holders, floodplain graziers, downstream communities and small irrigators.
