|Catchment Condition Report|
What is Catchment Condition Reporting?
Catchment condition reporting presents an assessment of the condition of key natural elements within a catchment and provides an indication of catchment health. It focuses on measuring and reporting on long term changes in biophysical catchment condition.
Catchment condition reporting involves the selection of a limited number of core indicators that demonstrate strong linkages between catchment pressures and natural resource condition. Indicators are a unit of information measured over time that can be used to show changes in a specific state or condition. Catchment condition reporting can be used to help understand the condition of our natural environment, provide a benchmark of condition to measure change, analyse trends over time and assist in environmental decision making and planning.
This report builds upon a trial undertaken on the Latrobe and Corner Inlet Catchment Ecosystems in 2009. It evaluates the condition of strategic natural resource assets within each of the seven catchment ecosystems and provides an understanding of the biophysical condition at the time of production. It presents the best available, credible information on the current condition of natural resource assets in these geographic areas.
The purpose of this report is to:
