The RNRRS Forestry Research Programme (FRP) commissioned a cluster of
projects on improved management of upper catchments in Costa Rica,
Grenada, India, South Africa and Tanzania, with the aim of examining the
validity of current water management policies and practices. Results
from three of these studies are presented in this Brief, together with
reflections about influencing policy and lessons learned.
