Strengthening Connections

The Murray Lower Darling Rivers Indigenous Nations (MLDRIN) have welcomed the launch of the Murray Darling Basin Authority’s Strengthening Connections document. Strengthening Connections is the MDBA’s first reconciliation action plan, it outlines the organisation’s vision for equitable engagement with Aboriginal people and a range of actions to implement that vision.

MLDRIN works closely with the MDBA by providing advice and information and advocating for the rights of the Basin’s Traditional Owners. The Strengthening Connections document establishes a transparent set of goals and solidify’s the Authority’s commitment to honouring the principles of free, prior and informed consent.

MLDRIN Chair Darren Perry joined Northern Basin Aboriginal Nations Chair Fred Hooper and MDBA CEO Rhonda Dixon at the launch of the document yesterday in Canberra. You can view the Strengthening Connections document here.
