A five-step process was developed to answer the key question asked of Working Group 1:’Have the mitigation actions resulted in improved freshwater outcomes?’. To assist with the implementation of the five-step process described above, a range of information repositories, Decision Support Tools (DSTs) and modules were created. Three specific Decision Support Tools were developed: A riparian mitigation DST, a Lake Mitigation DST, a groundwater Nitrate DST. This report includes recommendations or suggestions for potential further work to develop specific elements of the framework beyond the’proof of concept’ stage and develop and integrate user-ready tools to guide the design of mitigation effectiveness mitigation plans.
