Managing for the Unknowns: Adaptive Resource Management

I recently posted a guest blog on the Georgetown Public Policy Review discussing adaptive management.  Two key areas that can make or break the success of an adaptive management plan are the strength of the management triggers that frame future decisions, and the quality of information gathered through monitoring that forms the basis for management.  The blog discusses these potential risks and looks at the new Forest Service NFMA planning rule as an avenue for applying good adaptive management principles in practice.
