Summary

The streams and rivers of the GCP LCC are delicately balanced ecosystems that link diverse habitats with the people, plants and animals that rely on clean and abundant water supplies to thrive. The natural patterns of seasonal flows in streams and rivers – called instream or environmental flows - are the drivers for many of the ecosystem functions and processes on which the riverine and coastal natural and human economies rely. Extreme droughts and population growth in the GCP LCC region have forced the recognition that water resources are limited and need to be better managed. Excessive extractions and diversions of water alter instream flows and threaten the ecological processes that are dependent upon them. Dams on large rivers, [...]
