3IP is the flagship element of SARMS and is supporting South Australian River Murray communities in their efforts to be better placed to respond to the Murray-Darling Basin Plan and be more resilient to the effects of fluctuating water availability, Senator Ruston said.
SARMS is on track to achieve around $1 billion in broader economic benefits to the region.
The $265 million SARMS Program is funded by the Australian Government and is being delivered by Primary Industries and Regions SA (PIRSA) over six years to mid-2019.
Mr Bignell also congratulated PIRSA today which was nominated for the Banksia Sustainability Award for Sustainable Water Management for developing the SARMS
The redeveloped Loxton Research Centre underpins the socio-economic outcomes of SARMS
and the Basin Plan implementation within the South Australian River Murray region.
The Government would like to see nominations from people with a genuine interest in the SARMS
Program, especially those who have extensive knowledge and expertise in those areas relevant to the Program.
Facilitating one of the State s key economic priorities, production of Premium Food and Wine from our Clean Environment will be a major investment focus for SARMS
