The project focused on local producers as well as land owners. They received help with a strategy to lower their vulnerability and mitigate the negative effects caused by high precipitation and floods. In the same way the project strengthened their adaptation capacity towards climate change and therefore improving their quality of life. The integrated watershed management strategies had been successfully introduced to the most important decision takers and various alliances among institutions lead to a development of processes and actions, mainly the mechanism of paying for environmental services.
