1.3.1 Methods


The water-dependent asset register described in this product is a list of water-dependent assets identified for the bioregional assessment (BA) of the Central West subregion. This section details the specific application to the Central West subregion of methods described in the companion submethodology M02 (as listed in Table 1) for compiling water-dependent assets (Mount et al., 2015), outlining how the register was compiled. Key concepts and terminology are also explained.

The methods covered include: the process of collecting different groups of assets and assessing their water dependency using multiple lines of evidence, the development and compilation of the water-dependent asset register, and the general determination of a preliminary assessment extent (PAE) in BAs (note that the Central West subregion does not have a PAE).
