Beschreibung:

This book is about accomplishing change in how land is managed in agricultural watersheds. Wide-ranging case studies repeatedly document that plans, policies, and regulations are not adequate substitutes for the empowerment of people. Ultimately change on the land is managed and accomplished by the people that live on land within each watershed.
This book presents studies of citizens' individual and collective efforts to work through complex issues associated with watershed management. It offers insight and knowledge that can be used by those who are working to protect and improve U.S. waters.
This book is about understanding and solving local problems of non-point source water pollutionReaders are provided with a framework and empirical evidence to document the many ways people engage each other to make sense of and solve shared watershed concerns
Examines the idea that citizens are an untapped resource when it comes to solving water quality problems
