The overall mission of the Partnership for Coastal Watersheds is to collaborate to understand watershed conditions and address their capacity and resiliency to serve ecological, economic, and social needs for present and future generations.
About the Partnership for Coastal Watersheds – Phase I
- Phase I (2010 – 2012) first focused on collaboration by:
- convening a steering committee;
- creating a Mission Statement; and
- developing a Community Vision that describes desirable conditions 25 years in the future.
How is the Partnership Guided?Using the collaborative process, the group established a common understanding of local environmental, social and economic conditions and produced the resultant State of the Watersheds Assessment. The group also created a prioritized Action Plan with the intent of improving socio-economic and environmental conditions in the project area.
