Parallels – the Delta and the Darling River

Here’s a good post about what went wrong in Australia with management of the Darling River. To me, the problem is saying they will make flexible adaptive management decisions instead of flow requirements.

Worth the Read: Flexible Management of Ecosystem Water and the Australian Catastrophe.


To me, “Adaptive Management” has long been a buzzword used by the tunnel proponents. Unfortunately, the same people never truly treat the environment as an equal partner. In fact, during one Delta Stewardship Council, Chair Randy Fiorini actually stated regarding the co-equal goals, that when there is a tie, they will always go with the exporters. (The fish die.)
