It is vital that participatory, stakeholder-led catchment planning is underpinned by robust data and evidence. Once the evidence has been evaluated, the partnership can then work to define areas of the catchment most likely to play a critical role in the provision of the different ecosystem services and where, therefore, catchment management measures should be targeted for the most multifunctional benefit.
