New guide on use of adaptive management

A new guide on the use of adaptive management, Adaptive Management: The U.S. Department of the Interior Applications Guide, provides natural resource managers with tools to more effectively address the complexities and uncertainties involved in natural resource management, especially under challenging conditions such as climate change. This document was designed to complement and build on the framework established by its companion document, Adaptive Management: The U.S. Department of the Interior Technical Guide.

The new Applications Guide includes examples, case studies and discussion of “how-to” issues whereas the Technical Guide includes a discussion of the basic criteria for applying adaptive management and step-by-step descriptions of implementation.
