The importance of stakeholder participation in sustainable watershed management, the related participation models and participation process will form the main concern of this study. As well known, similar experiences have already been gained both in USA and EU by practicing these participation processes and models ; however, in Turkey, that is a candidate country to join EU, has not yet started applying such procedures effectively relating to participation efforts in management. Within the context of this thesis, initially fundamental principles and definitions on stakeholder participation will be referred followed by mentioning the lessons-learnt and information gained through the applications experienced in especially developed countries. A case study on one of the watersheds of Turkey, Büyük Menderes Watershed, stakeholder participation, related participation process and the most convenient model application will be proposed. The process and procedures of stakeholder participation in ’Integrated Watershed Management’ perspective that has been accepted and applied by not only EU ; but also by similar other developed countries, the methods preferred for better and effective participation including public will be investigated in detail in the study. Integrated Watershed Management aims to define the natural resources within the boundaries of the watershed and thus, determine any sectoral conflicts while also enabling coordination among any activities and policies related to the current legal and administrative structure with the participation of stakeholders representing the main water-related actors and users in the most compatible manner. Any deficiency or absence of any of these branches will lead to management failure. Integrated Watershed Management bears various authorities and stakeholders. By maintaining a good participatory effort through the representative groups from different water-related state and private organizations and offices together with NGO’s and media, the below underlined positive impacts may be attained. These are ; • Transparency in decisions taken, • Involvement of various information and ideas, • Pre-awareness of regional variations/developments, • Determining the sectoral conflicts and discrepancies at an early-stage and their resolutions, increasing the support level by accepting and taking up the decisions, • Forming constructive dialogues, • Good collaboration among individuals representing different sectors and of different levels, • By means of awareness increase, maintaining consciousness on the positive tangible and intangible gain attained through consultation to public.
