AbstractDescription This proceeding consisted of papers presented in a workshop in Padang/Singkarak, West Sumatra, Indonesia. 25-28 February 2004 involving researchers and policy makers from district, provincial, national and international levels. The chapters are preceded with a reader friendly executive summary. It revamps some ‘myth understanding’ of land use changes and hydrological relationship. The chapters include forest and watershed function relationship, the role of agroforestry in maintenance of hydrological functions, criteria and indicators for evaluating the success of watershed management, farmers’ practices worth rewarding, recognizing and rewarding of watershed services, institutional arrangement for watershed management, and reward mechanism of environmental services. Results of group discussion are included. The final parts show the picturesque photos of Singkarak and Maninjau lakes and their catchments
