Blog Entry
The article focuses on the research undertaking of Murray-Darling Basin Sustainable Yields Project by the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO), Australia, on Murray-Darling Basin (MDB), a geological structure that covers 1,061,469 square kilometres or about 14 percent of Australia. The project mentions about the working of MDB's complex water system. It also talks about how to measure MDB's capacity and supply under increasing demands and about how to understand the implications for local communities.
