The Shihmen Reservoir and Its Catchment Management Program was implemented from 2006 to 2011. The objective of this program was to solve water deficit crisis in the Taoyuan Country area due to the degradation of the functions of the reservoir. To respond to the call from environmental groups for more participation and ecological perspective, moreover, the main manager of this project–the Water Resources Agency of the Ministry of Environmental Resources, adopted an innovative initiative called “Ecological Impact Checklist,” to ensure that local citizens, environmental groups and ecology experts are consulted in the planning process of each and every construction project.
