The 2010 Guánica Bay Decision-Making Workshop brought together representatives from federal and territorial government agencies, non-governmental organizations and academic institutions, and Guánica Bay watershed citizens to develop a decision analysis framework built upon the Guánica Bay Watershed Management Plan (CWP 2008). The workshop provided a forum for participants to (1) review characteristics of, and threats to the Guánica Bay watershed, coral reefs and coastal ecosystems, and (2) discuss ongoing and future restoration activities in the watershed. The structured decision-making (SDM) approach demonstrated throughout the workshop helps watershed managers to define the problem(s) under consideration, develop a set of management options, determine who should be involved, create a shared understanding of how people with different interests and perspectives view different options, and compare the trade-offs created by each option. This process can be used in other watersheds to achieve similar objectives. The Guánica Bay Watershed project has shown that the watershed approach, which includes stakeholder involvement and management actions supported by sound science and appropriate technology, can be used to protect coral reefs from land-based sources of pollution. Based upon the success of the Guánica Bay Watershed project, the USCRTF has designated two additional priority watersheds - Faga’alu, American Samoa in 2010 and West Maui, Hawai’i in 2011.
