Abstract: "Watersheds connect land units through flows of water, nutrients, and sedimentlinking farmers, fishers, and urban dwellers inintricate relationshis. How these flows affect peoples livelihoods depends on the biophysical attributes of the watershed as well as on the policies and institutions that shape human interactions within the watershed. Watersheds are managed at various social and spatial scales--from community management of small catchments to the transnational management of extensive river systems and lake basins. "The System-wide Program on Collective Action and Property Rights (CAPRi) convened a workshop in March 2000 to consider some of the key is sues in watershed management research. The workshop was organized around the themes of: 1) collective action and property rights; 2) social-spatial scale; 3) stakeholder participation in watershed management research; and 4) assessment of the impacts of watershed management. This brief summarizes some of the insights that came out of the workshop." .
