Collaborative Approaches to Natural Resource Management

There is a growing need to find novel ways to deal more effectively with these issues using collaborative approaches. This symposium brings together local and international experts
on this topic to describe contemporary research on collaborative approaches to natural resource management, and to discuss ways forward in meeting the governing challenges related to these issues.

- Prof. Edella Schlager (Arizona University)
Collaborative Watershed Management: Institutions, Conflicts, and Scale
