Abstract

Population increases will continue to severely pressure water resources in the 21st century. Consequently, the importance of watershed management will increase. The potential demand in the next century for information on, and individuals skilled in, watershed management raises several important issues: the need for watershed management to have a central voice to gain the attention of political, government agency, university, and business leaders; the adequacy of watershed management professional training; the need to identify watershed management as a discipline; and the need for a new organization with a central focus on watershed management to support for watershed management professionals. This paper addresses and solicits inputs on these issues to advance the watershed management into the 21st century.
