This is one of 280 summaries describing key outputs from the projects
run by DFID's 10-year Renewable Natural Resources Research Strategy
Principally based on Projects R7937, R8171, R8174 and R7991. Various
linked projects have been working to provide firm foundations for
livelihood-improving efforts to manage forests and land in upper water
catchments. Known as the FRP-FLOWS studies, the projects are providing
in-country government departments in Grenada, South Africa, Tanzania,
Costa Rica and India with much-needed facts and policy-guiding
information. They've also been demonstrating that hydrological models
like HYLUC, SWAT and ACRU really do work. Outputs from the projects
include workshops for ministers and policy briefs that give decision
makers key insights into payment for environmental services schemes. The
projects have also developed a new dissemination tool known as EXCLAIM,
as well as the so called 'Rapid Quadrant' approach—which is helping in
the design of new interventions in 100 watersheds in support of two
$200-million World Bank-funded watershed development projects.
