Declining inflows and more frequent droughts in the Murray-Darling Basin: climate change, impacts and adaptation

No 152088, Risk and Sustainable Management Group Working Papers from University of Queensland, School of Economics

Abstract: It is likely that climate change will be associated with reductions in inflows of water to the Murray–Darling Basin In this paper, we analyse the effects of climate change in the Murray–Darling Basin, using a simulation model that incorporates a state-contingent representation of uncertainty. The severity of the impact depends, in large measure, on the extent to which climate change is manifested as an increase in the frequency of drought conditions. Adaptation will partially offset the adverse impact of climate change.
