Description: To enhance natural resources in Ecuador’s highlands, a research partnership was formed between Ecuador’s national agricultural research institute, several US universities and local farmers. To help identify and introduce environmentally friendly farming practices to the area, the research program used an adaptive watershed management process, which involves consultation with stakeholders, formation of a watershed plan and ongoing research and monitoring to adapt the plan over time.
