Abstract: To achieve effective conservation of freshwater ecosystems, close coordination and cooperation is required among sectors responsible for protection and management of water resources, biodiversity conservation, land-use management (including agricultural resources), and integrated development planning (MacKay & Ashton 2004). Of special importance is the coordination between land-related and water-related sectors because freshwater ecosystems are affected by activities that happen throughout their drainage areas (Linke et al. 2007)
