Shared Vision Planning

Shared Vision Planning (SVP) is a collaborative approach to formulating water management solutions that combines three disparate practices: 1) traditional water resources planning, 2) structured public participation and 3) collaborative computer modeling. Although each of these elements has been successfully applied, what makes Shared Vision Planning unique is the integration of traditional planning processes with structured public participation and collaborative computer modeling. This web site is designed to inform visitors about Shared Vision Planning and how it is being applied in real-world situations. It features a step-by-step demonstration, information about the origins of SVP, current and historical case studies, and thorough explanations of shared vision planning models, resources and training for those interested in implementing the approach.
