This publication presents a range of water, social, environmental and economic statistics relating to the Murray-Darling Basin. This region produces a high proportion of Australia's agricultural production and uses approximately 70% of the water applied to agriculture in Australia. Approximately two million Australian's live in the Basin, and are mainly employed in retail, health and agriculture. The region is environmentally significant in terms of internationally recognised wetlands, red gum forests, and the river ecosystem itself.
