Description / Abstract: The Framework for the Assessment of River and Wetland Health provides a comprehensive outline for surveillance-type river health monitoring, underpinned by the pressure–stressor–(ecological) response framework that seeks to link anthropogenic pressures to river health. Monitoring river health is an essential element of the adaptive management cycle, and can provide early warning of river health degradation. The logistical, resource and capacity constraints of monitoring, and the unique environment, necessitate the development of a monitoring system tailored to the wet–dry tropics. - Executive summary
