Description
This report provides ABARES initial outlook for water allocation prices in the southern Murray-Darling Basin (sMDB) for 2020-21. This outlook uses forecasts provided by state water agencies for allocations, and seasonal conditions from the Bureau of Meteorology (BOM). A brief summary of market conditions prevailing in 2019–20 is also provided. The ABARES Water Trade model (WTM) is used to simulate potential 2020–21 water allocation prices for four representative scenarios: extreme dry, dry, average and wet. Each scenario includes estimates of potential future allocation percentages, rainfall and commodity prices.
