1 Public Participation Spatial Decision Support System For Integrated Watershed Management Chih-Hong Sun 1, Chin-Te Jung, Sue-Ching Jou, Jiun-Chuan Lin, Jehn-Yih Juang, Shih-Chien Chan, Zue-Er Chen, Chia-Hong Jen
22 Research Goals Develop a public participation spatial decision support system for integrated watershed management Use GIS to integrate government spatial data and use ontology to integrate academic research results to help stakeholders solving conflict issues in the watershed Provide training mechanism for stakeholders

77 What is Integrated Watershed Management Integrated watershed management is the process of managing human activities and natural resources on a watershed basis, taking into account, social, economic and environmental issues, as well as community interests in order to manage water resources sustainably.
88 Integrated Watershed Management Provides Multiple Benefits Through integrated watershed management, all community interests work together to identify what issues and actions are impacting the watershed’s resources, and then map out different strategies and plans to address those issues.
99 Integrated Watershed Management Provides Multiple Benefits These plans and strategies are implemented, monitored, reported on, and updated – on a regular basis – in order to adapt to changing land uses, new or increasing stressor, new information, or different management approaches.
10 Integrated Watershed Management Provides Multiple Benefits Integrated watershed management helps us to focus on priorities and link strategies and actions leading to smarter, science-based decisions that ensure a long and healthy future.
11 An IWM Approach Would Support: Improved water quality and quantity Flood and erosion management Resilient biodiversity and habitats Sustainable economic and recreation opportunities Improved quality of life and neighborhood desirability Greater ability for watersheds to adapt to the impacts of climate change, urbanization and other stressors.
12 Stakeholders for Integrated Watershed Management Key organizations responsible for water management. These include in particular those who take decisions or implement changes in policy and practice (e.g. policy makers and regulatory authorities) Utilities and service providers (whether public, private, voluntary, formal or informal etc.) Individual water users (e.g. enterprises that need large amounts of water for production or energy generation, owners of tourism, sport or other recreational facilities)
13 Stakeholders for Integrated Watershed Management User groups (e.g. representing domestic consumers, farmers in peri-urban areas etc.) Health care, social and educational institutions (e.g. hospitals, schools, kindergardens) Civil society organisations committed to help solve local water issues or issues closely related with water management such as poverty, gender, environmental pollution etc. (e.g. NGOs, trade unions, professional associations etc)
14 Stakeholders for Integrated Watershed Management Organisations that can strengthen the process through the provision of their expertise (e.g. training and research organisations) Locally respected activists or champions who draw attention to the process and can help increase public awareness and trust The media, which is important to create a bridge between the activities and the wider public and also functions as a critical observer Financial organisations or the donor community which might be crucial to support the process as such, the realisation of demonstration activities or the implementation of the strategic plan

27 Regional and Urban Planning Disater Management Water Resources Planning Water Environment Planning Organization and Laws Public Participation
28 Conclusions Stakeholders involvement and public participation are the key to the success of integrated watershed management MAKOCI integrate and provide needed information to the stakeholders for better decision making
