About this document
Each year, the Commonwealth Environmental Water Office undertakes planning on how to best manage the Commonwealth’s environmental water portfolio. This document sets out the overarching approach to portfolio management planning, which integrates planning for water delivery, trade and carryover in a multiyear context. The approach is based on the Commonwealth Environmental Water Portfolio Management Framework and is consistent with the objectives and outcomes of the Murray–Darling Basin Plan and the Basin-wide environmental watering strategy.
This document is complemented by portfolio management plans for ten areas across the Murray–Darling Basin. These are available at: Publications and resources.
