The main objective of this research was to conduct a systematic evaluation of the factors that influence the establishment, functioning and outcomes of two CBM initiatives; Maasai Mara Citizen Observatory in Kenya and Grip op Water Altena in the Netherlands. This research was conducted using a qualitative empirical research methodology. The framework of this study is called the CPI framework and builds on both theoretical and empirical evidence in the fields of CBM and affiliated fields of research.
