Title: Adaptive Environmental Management
Authors: Allan.Catherine

Description: The increasing complexity and uncertainty surrounding the management of natural resource systems, combined with the complex interactions that occur between those systems and people, over multiple jurisdictional and temporal scales, have revealed the limits to traditional, reductionist scientific inquiry. In response to this, there has been increasing interest in the concept of adaptive management – the purposeful and deliberate design of policies in such a way as to enhance learning as well as to inform subsequent action. Yet despite the great promise such an approach holds, experiences across multiple resource systems and social–political settings suggest that major barriers confront efforts to implement adaptive management effectively
