Overview

This volume highlights the need for enhancing the effectiveness of land stewardship and management of the world's natural resources to meet the need of the growing global population for conservation, sustainable development, and the use of land, water, and other natural resources. Ecosystem-based, multiple-use land stewardship is necessary when considering the present and future uses of land, water, and other natural resources on an operationally efficient scale. The chapters focus on global watershed management perspectives, problems, and programs; a retrospective survey of watershed management, lessons learned, emerging tools and technologies, and locally-led initiatives; the issues confronted when implementing a watershed management approach to land stewardship; the anticipated future contributions of watershed management to land stewardship; and the prools necessary to realize the contributions of watershed management to land stewardship in practices, projects, and programs.
