Abstract

Society will likely implement protocols when adopting a watershed management approach to future land stewardship. Three of the protocols, identified by the participants at the conference on “Land Stewardship in the 21st Century: The Contributions of Watershed Management” as high priority (14 Ffolliott et al., 2000a), are considered in this chapter. They are:
  • Anticipating future watershed conditions and maintaining landscape integrity;

  • Responding to increased demands for land, water, and other natural resources; and

  • Implementing appropriate land-use policies to attain these protocols and meet other demands for natural and economic resources.

Water unifies watershed management protocols. Implementation of effective land-use policies that incorporate ecological understanding and promote democratic ideals is also necessary. Guidelines to achieve this are the immediate integration of the political process, building bridges to citizens, examining laws, rights, and responsibilities, strengthening administrative capacity, and looking beyond the watershed to a broader scale. Before examining these future protocols, we reinforce the rationale for a watershed management approach to land stewardship.
