Abstract

Twelve years after the completion of OBH, this research concludes that OBH did implement adaptive management and had a major influence on subsequent Victorian pest plant programs and policy.This research determined that regional weed programs are ideally suited to implement adaptive management and can assist in proving its practical NRM application. The research provides some lessons about implementing adaptive management; the enablers and how to overcome some constraints. It suggests NRM agency training in monitoring and adaptive management is required and short term funding and high staff turnover in weed programs are constraints. It suggests leadership in a position of authority with political support may be necessary for adaptive management to thrive. This suggests the research has a broadapplicability for the use of adaptive management in regional settings.
