1.3.1 Methods


The water-dependent asset register described in this report is a list of water-dependent assets identified for the bioregional assessment (BA) of the Pedirka subregion. This section details the specific implementation to the Pedirka subregion of methods described in the companion submethodology M02 (as listed in Table 1) for compiling water-dependent assets (Mount et al., 2015).

The methods covered include: the process of nomination and collation of different groups of assets, the determination of the preliminary assessment extent (PAE) for the Pedirka subregion, the approach to determine water dependency based upon multiple lines of evidence (including literature, remote sensing data and available mapping), and the development and compilation of the water-dependent asset register.

The asset list for the Pedirka subregion, prior to assessment of water dependence, contains 1305 assets that intersect the Pedirka PAE, comprising 1239 ecological assets, 7 economic assets and 59 sociocultural assets.
