The effects of global change drivers differ by place and in scale, necessitating place-specific impacts information to enable stakeholders to respond appropriately. Place and scale also determine appropriate adaptation strategies and expected outcomes. Three watershed case studies were conducted by GCRP to advance the capability of managers to consider climate and land use change in watershed management decisions. The case studies were of the San Pedro River Watershed, the Sacramento River Watershed, and several small watersheds in Maryland (see Related Links).
A review of these case studies was conducted by the Global Change Research Program (GCRP) staff to learn effective analytic, project management, and decision support approaches for conducting watershed assessments. This report is a synthesis of what was learned from conducting those three watershed case-study assessments. The report provides a summary of the scientific findings from the three case studies available below and discusses insights gained from a comparison across case studies of the process of conducting watershed assessments and effective ways of improving our capability to support decisions.
