Environmental Flow assessments for the Neelum, Jhelum and Poonch Rivers affected by the proposed hydropower developments in Pakistani-controlled Kashmir. This project made use of the DRIFT DSS and built on earlier work done in the basin for individual hydropower projects.

Environmental Flow Task Leader. The objectives of the assignment were to:
Consolidated existing DRIFT DSSs for parts of the basin into a single basin-wide DSS
Add sites to allow for the evaluation of additional HPPs envisaged for the basin (Table 1)
Synchronise the baseline hydrology/sediment time-series
Extend the fish migration routes throughout the basin, as appropriate
Run an initial set of basin-wide scenarios to demonstrate the sorts of information that can be provided using the consolidated DSS.

Environmental Flow Task Leader:Environmental Flow assessments for the Upper Trishuli River affected by the proposed Upper Trishuli Hydropower Project in Nepal. Mentoring a Nepalese EFlows specialist through the required tasks to project completion.

Environmental Flows: Environmental Flow assessments for Kouilou-Niari River affected by the proposed Sounda Hydropower Project.

Environmental Flow Task Leader: Environmental Flow assessments for the Neelum and Jhelum Rivers affected by the proposed Kohala Hydropower Project in Pakistani-controlled Kashmir. This project made use of the DSS compiled for the NJHEP HPP project in the same basin, with permission of the client for NJHEP (NESPAK). The database was updated for Karot and Kohala HPPs, plus additional HPPs in the basin, such as Patrind HPP.

Collation of information pertinent to, and generation of Environmental Water Requirement (EWR) data for, the classification of rivers in the Berg River basin and calculation of Resource Quality Objectives (RQOs) for a monitoring programmes.

Collation of information pertinent to, and generation of Environmental Water Requirement (EWR) data for, the classification of rivers in the Breede and Gouritz River basins and calculation of Resource Quality Objectives (RQOs) for a monitoring programmes.

Generating a thorough understanding of the functional ecology of the Elephant Marsh incorporating hydromorphology, ecosystem services, biodiversity, and livelihoods; and model past, present, and future possible management strategies.

To use a variety of data sources to compile a framework of change at temporal and spatial scales of relevance to river ecosystems, and to correlate these with known, and measured, changes in river ecosystem condition with the aim of identifying the long-term: (1) natural cycles; (2) non-flow related impacts and (3) flow related impacts on components of the rivers.
