This chapter summarizes the current state of knowledge about the factors influencing the success of watershed partnerships. It begins by discussing a conceptual framework for watershed partnerships that identifies aspects of the collaborative process, participants, and context that may influence effectiveness. It then presents the findings from the watershed partnerships literature, focusing in depth on the National Estuary Program (NEP) study and the Watershed Partnership Project (WPP). The conceptual framework presented in this chapter receives further testing through a new set of parallel analyses of the NEP and WPP data. The framework and analysis were originally developed for a working paper commissioned by the National Research Council.

Keywords:   sustainability planning, cities, environmental protection, watershed management, National Estuary Program, the Watershed Partnership Project
