MORE INFO:

Recognised as the ‘food bowl of Australia’, the Murray Darling Basin (MDB) is where the bulk of Australia’s food is produced. While the MDB is critical to Australia’s future food security, its farmers, communities and environments are under considerable stress. The broad aim of this conference is to promote dialogue, debate and collaboration on the complex food security challenges facing the MDB, but also to provide policy-relevant insights which can contribute to the development of more sustainable, resilient and socially just food systems for the Murray Darling Basin. To achieve this aim the conference is organised according to three key themes:

  • Feeding the world? Global food security and the MDB
  • Climate Change and Food Security in the MDB
  • Food Access and Equity Issues in the MDB.

The conference will be relevant to a wide range of people including: federal and state government agencies and politicians; farming organisations; natural resource management organisations; irrigation organisations; academics/researchers; local government representatives; agribusiness; community food coalitions; food activists; and food relief organisations.
