Abstract

This Executive Report is the first of a new series of publications designed to communicate the findings of research conducted at and in collaboration with IIASA to a wider readership, especially to those who can put the findings into effect, such as executives in government and industry. This is consistent with IIASA's goal not only to develop useful information on important international issues, but also to convey that information to those who can act on it.

Most of the material in this report derives from "Adaptive Environmental Assessment and Management," edited by C.S. Holling. The book is based on the work of a group led by C.S. Holling, which drew upon an international network of scientists linked with IIASA and the Institute of Animal Resource Ecology of the University of British Columbia. Supplemental funding for the study and for preparation of the book was provided by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). Some of the individuals who have contributed to the development of adaptive environmental assessment and management are listed on page 16.
