Effective management of environmental systems involves assessment of multiple (physical, ecological, and socio-economic) issues, and often requires new research that spans multiple disciplines. Such integrative research across knowledge domains faces numerous theoretical and practical challenges. In this paper, we discuss how environmental modelling can(More)
Marine fish stocks are in many cases extracted above sustainable levels, but they may be protected through restricted-use zoning systems. The effectiveness of these systems typically depends on support from coastal fishing communities. High management costs including those of enforcement may, however, deter fishers from supporting marine management. We(More)
Decision support tools that aim to assist efficient integrated water resources management should integrate the multiple, interdependent uses of water. There exist, however, few models that assess the trade-offs between environmental and socio-economic impacts of water management changes in an integrated framework. This paper presents a model that integrates(More)
This study reviewed 62 economic analyses published between 1995 and 2014 on the economic impacts of policies that incentivise agricultural greenhouse (GHG) mitigation. Typically, biophysical models are used to evaluate the changes in GHG mitigation that result from landholders changing their farm and land management practices. The estimated results of(More)
Natural resource management (NRM) typically involves complex decision problems that affect a wide variety of stakeholder values. More efficient NRM that seeks enhanced environmental, social and financial net benefits necessitates assessments of the environmental impacts, and costs and benefits of management investments in an integrated manner.
