Summary

Students need to understand the basic theories and concepts underlying resource and environmental management, and be able to apply those to practical situations. By covering basic theories and concepts, and by using case studies to show how these have been applied, Bruce Mitchell's new edition seeks to ensure that students have competence in both aspects. * thematic consideration of change, complexity, uncertainty and conflict leads to appreciation of their significance and the importance of being able to deal with them * systematic attention to concepts of visioning, ecosystem approach, impact assessment, adaptive environmental management, partnerships and stakeholders, local knowledge systems, gender and development, dispute resolution, implementation, monitoring and evaluation, and environmental justice * case study material included from developed and developing countries in many world regions * guest statements from academics, government public servants, nongovernment organisations and consultants * fully restructured - the book begins by highlighting basic concepts of change, complexity, uncertainty and conflict, then considers some general strategies to deal with turbulent decision-making environments full of uncertainty. Subsequent chapters address developing a vision or sense of direction, and using a mix of processes to develop a product (policy, program, plan) which can be implemented and monitored Bruce Mitchell is Professor of Geography and Associate Vice-President Academic at the University of Waterloo. He has received the Award for Scholarly Distinction in Geography from the CAG (amongst other awards) and has served as a consultant or advisor to provincial and federal governments in Canada, as well as the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development in Paris, the National Academy of Sciences in Washington, DC, the International Joint Commission, the Government of Western Australia and the Asian Institute of Technology, Bangkok.
