Trial of the Framework for the Assessment of River and Wetland Health (FARWH) in the wet/dry tropics

Trial of the Framework for the Assessment of River and Wetland Health (FARWH) in the wet/dry tropics

The National Water Commission developed a national framework that formed the basis of comparable national river and wetland health assessments, and has the capacity to bring together results of existing broad-scale assessments conducted at state, territory and basin scales. The Framework for the Assessment of River and Wetland Health (FARWH) was trialled by TRaCK in order to evaluate the effectiveness of the Framework in assessing river health in the wet/dry tropics, and contributing to north Australian river management.
