Review of the Lake Eyre Basin Intergovernmental Agreement
The purpose of the Lake Eyre Basin Intergovernmental Agreement is to provide for the development, adoption or implementation of policies and strategies concerning water and related natural resources to avoid or eliminate, as reasonably practicable, adverse cross-border impacts. Livestock SA believes that not only does the Agreement need to continue, but it must be strengthened to provide for formal structures for both the Community Advisory Committee and the Scientific Advisory Panel. There also needs to be a more sustainable funding model for the Agreement into the future. It is essential that not only are South Australian interests taken into account but that the interests of South Australian pastoralists are always considered, as they are major stakeholders within this State.
