9780262693196: Swimming Upstream: Collaborative Approaches to Watershed Management (American and Comparative Environmental Policy)

In recent years, water resource management in the United States has begun a shift away from top-down, government agency-directed decision processes toward a collaborative approach of negotiation and problem solving. Rather than focusing on specific pollution sources or specific areas within a watershed, this new process considers the watershed as a whole, seeking solutions to an interrelated set of social, economic, and environmental problems. Decision making involves face-to-face negotiations among a variety of stakeholders, including federal, state, and local agencies, landowners, environmentalists, industries, and researchers.

Swimming Upstream analyzes the collaborative approach by providing a historical overview of watershed management in the United States and a normative and empirical conceptual framework for understanding and evaluating the process. The bulk of the book looks at a variety of collaborative watershed planning projects across the country. It first examines the applications of relatively short-term collaborative strategies in Oklahoma and Texas, exploring issues of trust and legitimacy. It then analyzes factors affecting the success of relatively long-term collaborative partnerships in the National Estuary Program and in 76 watersheds in Washington and California. Bringing analytical rigor to a field that has been dominated by practitioners' descriptive accounts, Swimming Upstream makes a vital contribution to public policy, public administration, and environmental management.

Review:

I've been asking for this book for five years, but wondered who had the ambition and skill to pull it off. I shouldn't have wondered. Sabatier has assembled a top-notch team to address the thorniest issues surrounding collaborative watershed management. Swimming Upstream provides a long overdue infusion of theory and scholarship to a field overrun by dogma and propaganda.

(Doug Kenney, Natural Resources Law Center, University of Colorado)

Swimming Upstream represents the product of a sustained and provocative collaboration on the subject of collaboration itself with watershed management in the spotlight. The authors develop and integrate cutting-edge theory, test important hypotheses, and tease out insightful implications for practice as well as research.

(Laurence J. O'Toole, Jr, Golembiewski Professor, Department of Public Administration and Policy, University of Georgia)
