RiverReach Consulting emerged from 20+ years of professional experience by its Director Frederick Bouckaert in freshwater ecology and biological monitoring in Australia, including the Sustainable Rivers Audit, the largest biomonitoring program in the Murray-Darling Basin, and further professional development in ecosystem services, integrated river basin management and water governance. We focus on sustainable development options for rivers, estuaries and floodplain wetlands and their users, bringing together stakeholder perspectives on problem issues arising from conflicting water use or unsustainable water use. This includes biodegradation, pollution and biodiversity loss, but also equitability issues between key stakeholders, policy reforms and their effect on water users, including boundary conflicts and competing demands. We aim to provide nature-based solutions to mitigate impacts from climate change and contribute to resilient freshwater ecosystems. RiverReach Consulting operates at the intersection of participatory action research, policy and regulation and investigates cultural, ecological, social and economical dimensions in response to stakeholder requests. Our strong focus on integration of governance and socio-institutional capacity with freshwater ecosystem management complements technical quantitative approaches offered by other AWP partners. As a small partner, we are interested in entering consortium agreements for projects where our expertise can make a winning difference.
