Samenvatting

This new book examines past experience and future directions in the management of so-called 'wicked' environmental problems - those characterized by large-scale, long-term policy dilemmas and contentious political stalemates. Most importantly, the book reviews current thinking on the way forward, focusing on the implementation of 'learning networks,' in which public managers, technical experts, and public stakeholders collaborate in decision-making processes that are analytic, iterative, and deliberative. Wicked Environmental Problems offers new approaches for managing environmental conflicts and shows how managers could apply these approaches within common, real-world statutory decision-making frameworks. It is essential reading for anyone concerned with managing environmental problems.

Recensie(s)

This book should be required reading for government resource managers, their supervisors, and NGOs concerned with resource issues. Wicked problems, characterized by a high degree of scientific uncertainty and deep disagreement on values, will inevitably proliferate with increasing population and pressures on our lands and resources. This important book describes approaches to deal with wicked problems, and equally important, how not to approach them. --Lee M. Talbot Professor, Department of Environmental Science and Policy, George Mason University
