About this book

The goal of this work is to analyse data from a variety of cases to explain how the different roles government plays in collaborative environmental management lead to different processes and outcomes. The authors apply their new theoretical framework to cases involving the management of watersheds, rivers, animal habitats and forests.

'A welcome addition to the growing collaboration literature ... A useful resource for practitioners and students in environmental policy, planning, and public administration.' Journal of the American Planning Association 'A terrific book that expands our understanding of new forms of environmental governance. The authors bring a wealth of experience to provide a balanced, insightful, and highly readable account of a diverse set of cases involving collaboration for natural resource and environmental stewardship.' Peter J. May, University of Washington
