Under Article 6A, during the dry season for planning purposes, it has been agreed to take forward a range of possible flow frameworks to test how they perform in guiding planning decisions in the future.
A considered scenario could NOT be deemed acceptable for planning purposes if the monthly average discharge simulated by the DSF is below the lower bound for one or more months of the dry season at one or more of the selected hydrological stations.
The acceptable flows framework is based on the monthly average observed discharge in the dry season (December - May) during 1986-2000, as simulated by the Baseline scenario in the DSF at each of the selected hydrological stations .
