Summary

The Lake Eyre Basin Inter-Governmental Agreement (LEBA) came into effect in June, 2001 between the Australian, Queensland and South Australian governments (and the Northern Territory Government in 2004) to 'provide for the development or adoption, and implementation of Policies and Strategies concerning water and related natural resources in teh Lake Eyre Basin (LEB) to avoid or eliminate so far as reasonably practicable adverse cross-border impacts' to conserve or promote the LEB's important social, environmental, economic and cultural values.

This review satisfies the requirement for the LEBA to be reviewed after five years. The terms of reference were to assess the extent to which the objectives set out in clause 2.2 of the Agreement hvae been achieved, and other related matters.
