About the report

The purpose of the Lake Eyre Basin Rivers Assessment Methodology Development project was to develop a scientifically based methodology for assessing the condition of river ecosystems and catchments in the Lake Eyre Basin. Community and government have articulated the values of, and threats to, the Basin watercourses; these have been used as a guide for the scope of this assessment methodology. The ongoing development and revision of the assessment methodology will be important to its success in assessing the condition of river ecosystems and catchments in the Basin. This report, Methodology for Assessing the Health of Lake Eyre Basin Rivers provides the required background resource material to enable proceeding to the implementation stage of an assessment of condition of river ecosystems and catchments in the Lake Eyre Basin.
