Concluding reflections and planning the next research cycle[Chapter 12 in: Allen, W.J. allenw@landcare.cri.nz (2001) Working together for environmental management: the role of information sharing and collaborative learning. PhD (Development Studies), Massey University.] This chapter summarises the aims and activities of the work undertaken through this action research inquiry, and briefly reviews the outcomes as a means of demonstrating relevance. Future areas of activity with the potential to leverage improved information flows within environmental research and management are suggested as: i) improving participation and the use of local knowledge in the research process; ii) improving the dissemination and use of this knowledge in the wider community through improved networking and collaboration; and iii) capacity building -- supporting these approaches -- through participatory monitoring a…

The role of action research in environmental management[Chapter 3 in: Allen, W.J. webmanager (at) learningforsustainability.net (2001) Working together for environmental management: the role of information sharing and collaborative learning. PhD (Development Studies), Massey University.] As indicated in Chapter 2, we can look towards the body of knowledge that has been generated through action research for guidance in developing frameworks for the new approaches that seek to emphasise sustainable policy orientations and people-centred research and development . Accordingly, this chapter begins by outlining the underlying concepts of action research in more detail. Some differences between action research and mainstream science are then explained, particularly to justify its use as an appropriate methodology to the research and development challenges outlined in earlier sections of this thesis…

Introduction, structure and outline
[Chapter 1 in: Allen, W.J. (2001) Working together for environmental management: the role of information sharing and collaborative learning. PhD (Development Studies), Massey University. http://learningforsustainability.net/research/thesis/thesis_contents.php] This thesis represents an inquiry into how an adaptive management ethic and practice that supports the concept of sustainable development can be initiated and implemented in complex, regional or large-scale contexts. An action research inquiry process is used to find improved ways of managing collaborative or multi-stakeholder approaches to environmental management, and to develop an integrated information framework to underpin subsequent decision making. The research involves one main case study (tussock grasslands) and two smaller, but related, ones (black stilt, and bovine Tb vector control).

ABSTRACT

Back to contents ABSTRACThttp://learningforsustainability.net/research/thesis/thesis_abstract.html [Reference as: Allen, W.J. (2001) Working together for environmental management: the role of information sharing and collaborative learning. PhD (Development Studies), Massey University. Available on-line http://nrm.massey.ac.nz/changelinks/thesis_contents.php ] Resource management issues continually change over time in response to co-evolving social, economic and ecological systems. Under these conditions adaptive management, or ‘learning by doing', offers an opportunity for more proactive and collaborative approaches to resolving environmental problems. Effective collaborative management requires different stakeholders associated with environmental problems to develop and enact solutions co-operatively, as opposed to acting as advocates purely in their own interest. However, because environmental issues are generally characterised by conflicting social perceptions, it is often diffi…
