EN 245 - Natural Resource Management

Is natural resource management about managing resources or managing people? In this course, students will examine contemporary topics and approaches in natural resource management including decentralization, governance, and community-based resource management both in theory and in practice. Through an examination of a range of natural resource management projects (i.e., land, climate change & REDD, forestry and protected area management, water and irrigation), students will consider the cultural politics of resource management, examine various stakeholder agendas, and assess the outcomes of a range of projects implemented around the world.
