Working in Partnership

The Dee Catchment partnership (DCP) is the umbrella body representing, coordinating and working for the interests of everyone involved with the River Dee in north east Scotland. The 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. Our partners, the management plan which shapes our work and the publications we have produced, can all be viewed here. 

The River Dee is regarded as one of the cleanest Scottish rivers but impacts from a range of sources have significant collective impacts. The DCP 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.
