Publication: Watershed Management Approaches, Policies, and Operations : Lessons for Scaling Up
The report begins with definitions of watersheds and watershed management, a characterization of the problem of watershed degradation, and a short history of watershed management operations and policies (Chapter 1). The following four chapters discuss the findings from experience with implementing watershed management programs over the last 20 years based both on the project review and on the literature. The second chapter discusses the findings on watershed management approaches and methodologies. The third chapter looks at findings on institutions for watershed management. The fourth chapter reviews the economics of watershed management. In the fifth chapter, issues of watershed management interactions with the environment and the water cycle are discussed, as well as the challenge of climate change. A brief sixth and the final chapter summarizes the principal conclusions and recommendations of the report.
