‘natural resource management is much more about managing relationships than managing resources’

(Natcher 2007)

research context
Research Context
  • IRWMP: transition to new governance model
  • Widening stakeholder participation in NRM: exploring the ‘stakeholder infrastructure’
  • Water resources, uses and users: influences on management, historical legacies, water rights, information needs for collaborative decision making
slide5

Sierra Nevada watersheds

CABY Region

Study Area - 4 watersheds

highly integrated water

resource infrastructure

CABY

region

weap model for the caby watershed
WEAP Model for the CABY Watershed

WEAP model schematic

  • Model includes:
  • 324 catchments
  • 25 Reservoirs
  • 39 diversions
  • 33 hydropower plants
  • 14 transmission links to
  • 13 major water demands
additional pressures
Additional Pressures
  • Changing/conflicting policy landscapes.
  • Upstream/in-region demands.
  • Downstream/out-of-region demands.
  • Fiscal Pressures on resources.
  • Uncertainty: climate change, land use change, information needs.
research questions
Research Questions
  • Collaborative process in CABY region?
  • Form of SH participation?
  • Multiple ‘Knowledges’ and values ?
  • Network structures/processes?
  • Impact on collaboration of multiple overlapping processes/participation?
  • IRWMP regions within Sierra Region?
caby region stakeholder infrastructure includes
CABY Region Stakeholder Infrastructure includes
  • IRWMP: state funding mechanism: state directive.
  • FERC Hydro-relicensing application processes : federal mandatory.
  • Urban Water Management Plan (UWMP): state mandatory.
  • Yuba Salmon Forum (YSF) : watershed-based voluntary.
  • Sierra Water Works Group (SWWG) : Sierra-wide IRWMP group – voluntary.
research approach
Research Approach
  • Ethnographic – interviews, participant-observation.
  • Stakeholder / Social Network analysis : SH meetings, public outreach meetings, project collaborations
  • Knowledge mapping: disciplinary, professional, experiential, cultural
  • Document analysis: organizational mission statements, SH participation guidelines, legislation/regulatory, response letters.
building capacity for collaborative resilience
Building Capacity for Collaborative Resilience
  • Spatial and temporal ‘nesting’
  • Diversity – heterogeneity, asymmetry, redundancy in resource/social /institutional components.
  • Changes in network structure, process
  • Self-organizing systems: accountability and ‘leadership’ @ sense-making, challenging, facilitating
  • Knowledge: substantive, strategic – ‘ecology of games’; (Social) learning, uncertainties, adaptive
building capacity for collaborative resilience1
Building Capacity for Collaborative Resilience
  • ‘Fuzzy and overlapping’ collaborative networks
  • Collaboration as a temporal and spatial process, not an event – collaborative memory
  • Importance of place-based associations and spatial (re)scaling
