About the report
The way we manage water in the rangelands affects the plants and animals that are largely dependent on water supply, quality and seasonal variability.
Here, we identify five issues of national significance that are affecting water and biodiversity. They are climate change, modified natural flow regimes, leaky landscapes, artificial water points, and tourism and recreation.
