Dr Avril Horne - Participatory environmental flows assessments
Several of the key challenges to implementing environmental flows are related to the social and political context of environmental flows projects. These include community acceptance and buy in, political will and legislation, as well as effective stakeholder engagement. Despite this, in many countries there remains a delineation between environmental and social outcomes, and the process to determine environmental flows requirements remains a predominantly technocratic approach placing a large emphasis on scientific understandings of rivers.
Using the Goulburn River, Victoria, Australia as a case study, this presentation will discuss the design of a participatory approach to bring together scientists, community and government in an environmental flows assessment. There were benefits in the legitimacy for environmental flows in the river, but also significant changes in the scope and objectives for the flows. However, the project also highlighted some notable challenges for this approach, including the legislative definition of environmental flows, the mandated timelines, and the perception of the science community in their role.
