The Murray-Darling Basin (MDB) is a very complex socio-ecological system, with a multitude of stakeholders, industries, climates, infrastructure developments, and ecosystems. Human occupation spans back millennia, but within the last two centuries there have been massive changes brought about by a succession of government, community and business actions that have reshaped the environment. It is in such an environment that policy and decision-makers find themselves, in their view, having to plan interventions in a complex and uncertain situation, being unable to foresee the emergent characteristics of their actions.
