Abstract

Adaptive management is said to underpin most Australian natural resource management strategies, yet managers have limited access to information about what adaptive management is, or the advantages it offers. To redress this, a workshop was conducted in Albury NSW in July 2002 to discuss issues relating to adaptive management in Australia, particularly at regional scales. The workshop identified two requirements for adaptive management to become a genuinely useful approach for regional natural resource managers: some cultural and institutional changes are needed to foster a culture of experimentation and reflection, and natural resource policy makers need information and support to help them understand and incorporate an adaptive management approach. Although no definitive guidelines for using adaptive management techniques were agreed, the workshop did allow participants to share ideas and to develop communication networks (A).
