Abstract

The management of environmental issues, such as climate change and land use change, involves complex dynamics in ecology, economics and social systems. Developing integrated frameworks for these complex problems presents a challenge at all policy-making levels. Market-based policies for ecosystem services are examined with a focus on carbon sequestration, as an emerging synergy between land-use change and emissions trading of forestry-based carbon sinks, under the Kyoto Protocol. A systems-based approach offers the potential to increase our understanding of the complexity surrounding policy development for the management of multiple objectives of natural resources, within a holistic policy framework.
