Stewarding the natural and cultural resources of the Cienega Watershed of Southeastern Arizona.

Strategic Plan

Completed in 2009, the Cienega Watershed Partnership Strategic Plan has been implemented by focusing on the strategic initiatives. Parts of the Plan have been re-prioritized or even suspended to reflect the organization’s capacity and resources. The full Strategic Plan is available here; below are the initiatives:

Strategic Initiative One

Support the work plans of CCCC, SVPP, and other partners by facilitating collaboration and providing necessary resources.
CWP will facilitate the work of SVPP and CCCC by coordinating, collecting, and distributing the resources necessary for them to successfully execute their annual action plans. This includes providing technical assistance, grant writing, fundraising, volunteer recruitment, and acting as a clearinghouse for information and opportunities.   2015 Clarified “Partners, SVPP and CCCC…”

Strategic Initiative Two

Enable public policy that contributes to an ecologically healthy region, including the Cienega Watershed.
CWP will serve as a unifying body that initiates and coordinates actions that leverage resources to impact public policy in support of an ecologically healthy region. An ecologically healthy region includes the underlying natural systems comprised of appropriate biological diversity sufficient to adapt with resiliency over time, while retaining protected wildlife corridors that enable movement between surrounding wildlands and a carrying capacity that accepts and supports human uses. Human uses will be managed in the context of that carrying capacity, and will be managed so there is no net loss of value in ecological services that support future generations. We will employ mitigation strategies that protect the long-term health of the ecosystem with no net loss in function or value.

Strategic Initiative Three

Create a sustainable organization capable of carrying out the CWP mission and vision according to the values of the organization.
Central to the success of the other initiatives is the financial viability of CWP. Through expanded revenue sources and strategic alliances and partnerships, CWP provides the resources and staff needed to carry out its mission.
