Assessing needs relating to environmental flow and developing methods for this.
STATE OF IMPLEMENTATION
Completed. (All the elements of the measure have been completed both in terms of time and at all planned locations. If a measure consists of an unlimited continuum of measures, a measure can be regarded as having been completed once the first sub-measure has been completed.)
A method for assessing environmental flow has been developed, and it has been tested in experimental water bodies. A set of criteria for the prioritisation of environmental flow sites was under development, and it was completed in 2023.
