RiverSymposium special session
Where: Brisbane Convention Centre

Identifying hydrological characteristics of a healthy freshwater ecosystem to guide adaptation of freshwater systems to climate change
Presented by: CSIRO, NCCARF

This interactive session opens for discussion to the public the results of a National Expert Workshop run as a collaborative effort between the Water Resources and Freshwater Biodiversity Network of the National Climate Change Adaptation Research Facility (NCCARF) and the Australian Commonwealth Scientific Research Organisation (CSIRO).   This interactive session hopes to both elicit opinion from the participants as well as disseminate information from the National Workshop through the NCCARF Adaptation Research Networks, for adaptation to Climate Change in the water resources and freshwater biodiversity sector.

Maintaining a healthy freshwater ecosystem is a fundamental requirement when developing climate change adaptation plans for the water resource management sector. Failing to do so may have severe repercussions for essential services currently provided by rivers and water bodies systems, i.e., food and energy production, health and sanitation.
The National Workshop aimed to elucidate what constitutes a healthy freshwater ecosystem from a hydrological perspective and how those characteristics may alter under climate change, thereby altering the value and services provided by that ecosystem.  Such knowledge can be gained from improving our understanding of the synergies between the catchments’ environments and the pressures that surround them. From this information, a matrix of the potential future responses of various sectors, and the resulting pressures which might be exacted on the ecosystem in the future, could be generated.
