This unit examines approaches to management, participation and policy relevant to conflict over, and sustainability of, natural and cultural resources. It links an understanding of natural and social systems with conflict resolution and decision-making. The subject context is sustainable management and conservation of terrestrial and aquatic resources, biodiversity conservation and cultural heritage management. This unit provides an opportunity for students to explore environmental management and stakeholder issues relevant to the Australian environment within a framework of problem solving allied with adaptive management. Students will be required to critically evaluate a wide range of environmental information and use the analysis to make appropriate management decisions.
On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:
1. Analyse decision-making processes and constraints in environmental management, including the influence of conflict;
2. Understand the implications of top-down and bottom-up approaches to participation in environmental management;
3. Understand government and sectoral frameworks and linkages relevant to environmental management; and
4. Understand relevant policy setting processes and environmental conflict management techniques.
