Managing at a Catchment Scale

Image related to Managing at a Catchment Scale

This project is bringing together two different, top-down and bottom-up, perspectives on how to collaboratively manage catchments and river basins. The 'top-down' approach consists of analysis of the implementation by a statutory agency (SEPA) of the WFD in Scotland. This is an ongoing cyclical process with the opportunity to improve mechanisms over time. The bottom up approaches include understanding good practice in partnership based, multi-issue catchment management situations, the value of stakeholder engagement, and the influence that external factors can have on success. The insights from these two approaches will lead to a more holistic understanding of how to integrate catchment management processes to formal river basin management plans.
