Welcome to the Dee Catchment Partnership

The Dee Catchment partnership is the umbrella body representing, coordinating and working for the interests of everyone involved with the River Dee in north east Scotland. 

The Dee Catchment Partnership formed in 2003 to protect and improve the waters of the River Dee Catchment. Our work covers the River Dee, its tributary burns, lochs and wetlands, as well as water-related habitats and species.

The River Dee is regarded as one of the cleanest Scottish rivers but impacts from a range of sources have significant collective impacts. The Dee Catchment Partnership works towards addressing these impacts through integrated catchment management. This is achieved by communicating and coordinating management practises across the catchment and providing information and support. This integrated approach to catchment management results in cleaner water and more stable flow levels bringing a better environment for wildlife, less severe droughts and floods, and an improved environment for all river users.

On our website you can find out all about this unique area and our work to conserve and enhance it, including guidance for landowners and information about the landscape and wildlife, our projects, and what you can do to help the River Dee.
