-:|:-    Workshop Report, London, 30th November 2010

The workshop followed the end of project conference presented by the RELU funded ‘Catchment Management for Protection of Water Resources’ project on 29th November 2010. It aimed to be informal and to provide time for discussion, exploring a joint agenda with Defra and the Demonstration Test Catchment programme. It was held under the ‘Chatham House Rule’ and thus comments are not attributed and there is no list of attendees.

Diffuse water pollution originating from agriculture and other rural activities poses challenges for public policy and requires innovative adaptive management and a broad societal response. To assist this approach, the project developed an Ecosystem Health Report Card in consultation with stakeholders in two case study catchments.

-:|:-   Catchment Management for the Protection of Water Resources: A ‘Template’

Based on the achievements of innovative catchment management programmes in the USA, Australia
and north west Europe, and on piloting of approaches in England, the RELU fundedCatchment Management for the Protection of Water Resources’ project has derived a ‘template’ to guide integrated catchment governance through:

  • the use of science and communication tools to guide policy, decision making, and management measures;
  • collaborative partnerships and stakeholder participation that direct and enhance decision making; and
  • decision making and implementation at the level which is most effective and accepted within catchments.

For catchment management modelling to provide decision support tools can best be an ongoing, iterative process set in the context of an adaptive management cycle, and making effective use of deliberative engagement with stakeholders.

-:|:-   Lesson learning for catchment management

Policy transfer and its analogous term lesson drawing have received widespread and continuing attention in the public policy literature. To date, most theoretical and analytical approaches have centred on exploring the characteristics or mechanics of policy transfer, or promoting this concept as a normative project for improving policy-making. Surprisingly less attention has been given to systematically theorising the actual constraints on this process despite inherent and widely recorded difficulties with undertaking policy transfer in practice. This paper therefore reviews the policy transfer literature to draw out critical constraints.
