Publication: Who Are we Measuring and Modeling for? Supporting Multilevel Decision‐Making in Watershed Management

UHERO and an international partnership, ClimateWise, tackled the question of how hydrological ecosystem service information is actually used in decision making in watershed management programs. Linking hydrological monitoring and modeling efforts to actual user needs increases the relevance and uptake of these studies and has important implications for where researchers should focus their energy. As always, relationships and local champions matter a lot in the actual use of this type of information, and use is often in unexpected ways.
