A systems-based approach to policy making. Is there synergy between natural resource management and the Kyoto Protocol?
Allison, H.E. and Murray, F. (2001) A systems-based approach to policy making. Is there synergy between natural resource management and the Kyoto Protocol? In: The relevance of systems thinking in the contemporary world: Systems in Management 7th Annual ANZSYS Conference, 27 - 28 November, Perth pp. 25-31.
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.
