This document briefly discusses watershed processes and policy, focusing on the assessment link in the decision-making chain, at the cusp of policy and practice. The document organizes representative assessment strategies. It assumes that managers are responsible for data collection and analysis, and are interested in the reasons why data must be collected, what physical and biological processes can be monitored at a watershed level, and how the data should be collected in order to be useful.
