What is a CRMP? Coordinated Resource Management and Planning

Coordinated Resource Management and Planning (CRMP) is a community-based process used for resource planning, problem solving, and management. The CRMP process emphasizes direct participation by everyone concerned with natural resource management in a given planning area. The concept underlying CRMP is that coordinating resource management strategies will result in improved resource management and minimized conflicts among land users, landowners, governmental agencies, and interest groups.

The term "CRMP" is often applied to a group of people working together to improve watershed; which may include improving fish and wildlife habitat, improving water quality, implementing erosion control practices, or expanding recreational opportunities. CRMP, however, does not refer to the group itself, rather it is the process that members of the group use to increase understanding, communication, and involvement to reach agreement about whatever resource improvements are wanted or needed. The purpose of using CRMP is to solve problems and achieve objectives through consensus. CRMP is the process that leads to a product: better resource management. for more information, visit .
