Interorganizational collaboration is increasingly seen as an important process in environmental management. The new paradigm of managing places as ecosystems requires increasing attention to sustaining specific combinations of natural features, communities and institutions. Such projects are long-term, and therefore require the participation and support of often divergent interests. Sustaining collaboration beyond the initial agreement to work together requires attention to the motivation of organizations and their representatives, and to the importance of achievements for participants and external stakeholders. This paper reviews the literature on motivation and measuring achievement in environmental networks.
