The document aims to provide:
- up-to-date information on the hydrological needs and sensitivity of ecological features considered to have fresh water resource requirements
- a framework that can be used to structure and inform associated hydro-ecological assessments of conservation sites using a risk analysis approach based on the source-pathway-receptor concept
- advice on decision making within the context of multi-functional (in-combination) assessments, together with outline information on the generic issues which may arise
- information on common methods (or techniques) frequently used to inform hydroecological assessments
- case examples of assessments
