  • Increased awareness of the
  • river environment and our impact on it
  • Improvements in the ecological state of the river
  • The provision of guidance on how to involve local
    people in catchment scale projects

9
How are we assessing stakeholder involvement?
  • Through recording the range of involvement in the
    project
  • Through monitoring of peoples responses to the
    project
  • Assessment of random samples of the population to
    see how their attitudes to the river, the project
    and their impact upon the river change during the
    project

10
What does this meanoutside the catchment?
  • Implications for Water Framework Directive
    (notably Article 14)
  • Demonstrating community participation (not just
    consultation)
  • Guidance on how to integrate local people and
    national agencies
  • Provides important input for predicting likely
    outcomes - can we change peoples responses and
    attitudes?
