Promoting adaptive management based on participative monitoring and knowledge networks. In order to advance in ecosystem management from adaptive approach, different alternatives that recover knowledge and practices from workgroups and stakeholders have been tested. This project gets from these advances, knowledge networks and participative monitoring. From ecosystem monitoring in Rio Cuchujaqui watershed, Sonora, México, one set of meteorological, hydrological and functional traits data have been generating for several years, now is necessary collaborative studies and participative workshops in order to integrate not just the studies and analysis from this databases but the active learning and management from local stakeholders. The main goal is facilitate transversal ecosystem learning from formal to tacit local knowledge and vice versa. How to do this is by means of the active involvement of communities living in the watershed on the monitoring and built up of one information repository based in geoweb applications. Then, the three components of adaptative management included in this proposal for a knowledge ecosystem network are: one knowledge repository, a communication component and collaborative projects.
