Selection of priority research questions and research sites

This report outlines the proposed research priorities and research sites for MDB EWKR. In accordance with MDB EWKR project objectives and guided by the environmental objectives of the Basin Plan, the priorities and sites have been identified by:
1. consulting with jurisdictional environmental water managers to identify their knowledge needs and research priorities
2. consulting with researchers in freshwater ecology to identify their suggested priority research questions
3. using analysis of the project objectives and the outcomes sought by the Basin Plan, together with feedback received in the consultation activities with water managers and researchers to inform potential research priorities
4. evaluating potential research sites against their capacity to support research into the proposed priorities.
