The report examines the institutional framework for environmental management in the Malibu Watershed area, Los Angeles County, California. On the basis that the nature and scale of permitted development is likely to be the major factor shaping the future environment of the study area, an attempt is made to identify and assess the roles of both those agencies that play a positive role in promoting development and those that constrain and regulate development. Following a brief description of the study area, the report examines the roles of particular government agencies in planning and decision-making processes affecting different 'elements' of the environment (e.g., land-use, coastal resources, air quality, etc.). It then approaches the subject from a different perspective, studying the involvement of a number of institutions in particular projects or sets of projects (e.g., the installation of sewage treatment facilities, the construction of a private university, etc.). The information presented is discussed, and conclusions are drawn about current institutional roles in environmental management. Several problems are pointed out, and tentative recommendations are made for possible solutions worthy of further study.
