About this book

This book examines implementation of the Colorado Species Conservation Partnership (CSCP), a voluntary, landowner-initiated state endangered species program. The purpose of the study was to determine the extent of implementation success in achieving wise habitat preservation and species management agreements between landowners, the implementing agency--Colorado Division of Wildlife (CDOW)--and in certain cases, a third party, non- governmental organization; for critical, threatened and endangered species. Since most human activities harmful to wildlife and its essential habitat occur on private land, preservation of private habitat is essential. Successful implementation of CSCP was found to be dependent on a strong bottom-up, democratic approach to policy implementation by CDOW--perhaps best characterized as interactive symbiosis--that includes the literature-based concepts of successful implementation: value-added through discretion, mutual adaptation, policy learning and incentives. Additionally, CDOW understood the political, economic and social contexts that affected CSCP implementation.
