7 Conclusion

The analysis of potential impacts of unconventional gas resource development activities on water resources and matters of environmental significance identified by the assessment will inform and support the Australian Government and state management and compliance activities. Potential impacts identified by the causal network for the Cooper GBA region and key findings from targeted investigations can be used to prioritise future avoidance and mitigation strategies. The insights and needs that have come from discussions with government, industry, land users and the community at GBA workshops and user panel meetings have guided the investigations, development of the assessment method and design of the interactive web-based tool.
