The Rendezvous

This year's CAMNet meeting emphasized emergent, place-based approaches to natural resources management. To this end New England with its history of local governance, private lands and the open commons of fisheries offered a very different context within which to view the practice and the potential of collaboration adaptive management. The theme of this year's meeting was adaptive governance – the decision making context required for effective response to change, and presentations focused on innovative approaches to management of three resource types: fisheries, forestry, and climate change action.

See below for a summary of the discussions and presentations made at the meeting.
