Abstract
  • One of the greatest challenges in the West is the sustainable management of limited water resources. In recognition of localized responses to natural resource challenges, there has been considerable work in the area of adaptive capacity and collaborative governance to help understand a community’s capacity to manage change. This study combines the adaptive capacity and collaborative governance frameworks to create a new questionnaire to assess “adaptive governance capacity.” Mixed-methods, factor, reliability analyses, null hypothesis statistics, and effect size statistics from case data in Upper Deschutes in Oregon and the Big Wood River in Idaho were used to 1) develop a questionnaire to assess capacity, 2) compare the adaptive capacity and collaborative governance frameworks, 3) evaluate the survey’s performance under different collaborative contexts, and 4) provide information to water users engaged in a water planning effort. Overall, this research provides local stakeholders and managers with an applied tool to prioritize resources, develop more effective water management strategies that address site-specific needs, and identify barriers and opportunities for change while implementing place-based management. Additionally, this research provides managers with a questionnaire that can assist in the evaluation of change in capacity over time; this is especially needed in times of budgetary constraints and the need to justify engagement processes.
