Participatory watershed development studies

The web site of the British Overseas Development Institute's Agricultural Research and Extension Network (AGREN) features a study, Watershed Management to Counter Farming Systems Decline , that led us to discover a growing body of literature about how local people can be more involved in watershed planning. Examples include User participation in watershed management and research from the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) ,
Participatory watershed research and management: where the shadow falls from the International Institute for Environment and Development, and Conceptual and methodological lessons for improving watershed management and research from CGIAR's Systemwide Program on Property Rights and Collective Action (CAPRi). All these resources may be consulted online.
