Not something that I normally blog about, but this came through at work so I thought I would share for anyone in Adelaide who may be interested in attending as this FREE Hawke Centre event is about the Murray Basin Plan.
The Murray Basin Plan: From the Past into the Future
The Premier and others will inform and engage the South Australian community.
Wednesday 14 March 2012, 5.00pm for a 5.30pm start
Allan Scott Auditorium, UniSA City West campus, rear Hawke Building, 50-55 North Terrace, Adelaide.
RSVP essential via www.hawkecentre.unisa.edu.au or phone 08 8302 0215
This forum will bring together a panel representing a range of interests – irrigator, environment and government – to discuss the critical issues surrounding the draft Basin Plan and to engage the community in furthering the State’s position. Within South Australia there are a range of interests connected to the Basin Plan, but general agreement that even diverse interests can find enough common ground to support a united position that gets the best deal for the State. What are the issues we must grapple with in forming this position and what are the worthwhile compromises? Is the draft Basin Plan that has been released for consultation better than no plan?
Panel Chair: Professor Chris Daniels, Barbara Hardy Institute, University of South Australia.
