Progress in implementing KLRMP recommendations was assessed in the five-year monitoring report by the KIAMC (B.
To simplify effectiveness assessment, the 150 objectives and over 300 strategies in the KLRMP were condensed into a list of thirty desired outcomes, twenty for human activities and ten for the environment (BC 1995: 24 and 49).
The mean responses show that stakeholders viewed implementation as successful in reaching the KLRMP goals, in reaching the goals of the individual respondents' sectors, and in reaching the respondents' personal expectations (Figure 3).
In sum, implementation of the KLRMP has been successful in terms of implementing the recommendations, meeting plan objectives, and meeting expectations of stakeholders.
Next, the importance of these criteria in the KLRMP was tested by asking the KMT members to rank each criterion on a five-point scale ranging from not important at all to very important.
The KMT was also asked to assess the degree to which these criteria were met in the KLRMP on a five-point scale ranging from strongly agree to strongly disagree.
Local government agencies and the resource and environmental sectors worked together for many years prior to the KLRMP to develop and implement local resource use plans.
Conclusions: Formal training for KLRMP was insufficient to maximize participant effectiveness.
In KLRMP, two sectors which traditionally lacked power in resource management--conservation and recereation--contained three of the five members who had the time to adequately review and make effective use of the information provided.
In general, KLRMP members were credible representatives for their interests.
Conclusions: Although KLRMP lacked terms of reference per se, the table eventually developed an accepted process by consensus.
While KLRMP upheld responsible use of resources, it did not encompass the fundamental shift in philosophy required to achieve large-scale sustainability.
