This bottleneck system (MDBC
2006) is supposed to prevent that too much water is available in an upstream region and that consequential trade causes environmental problems in a downstream region.

The political dimensions of the Mekong exist far beyond the scope of technical expertise of the MDBC
. The overall differences in the two basins are reasons for caution in applying the Australian system to the Mekong.
Most of the early buying and selling of water entitlements has occurred within states, but the MDBC
is now piloting a program in the southern portion of the basin to allow permanent water trades across state boundaries.

The Murray--Darling Basin generates ~39% of the Australian national income derived from agriculture and grazing (MDBC
Multiple phases of hydraulic engineering since 1940 have substantially altered the natural water flow regimes, causing the naturally estuarine Lakes Alexandrina and Albert to become permanent freshwater bodies (Bourman and Barnett 1995:101; MDBC
The most recently produced soil class map for the catchment was developed by Bui and Moran (2003) as part of the Murray Darling Basin Information System (MDBC
1999), consisting of mapping units classified in accordance to Northcote (1979).

The Murray Darling Basin Commission's (MDBC
) Scientific Reference Panel has carried out an ecological assessment of environmental flow needs for the river, which has been leaked to the mainstream media.
