About this book

This text draws upon 'complex systems' thinking to introduce a policy-related integrative method for diagnosing and managing environmental change. This conveys how existing intellectual resources can be exploited to explore environmental decision issues without resoring to such devices as 'meta-methods' or 'meta-disciplines'.


Contents

Complex systems and environmental diagnostics; agricultural production and degradation - the case study example; systems thinking and qualitative structures; the value of social enquiry; results from social enquiry; policy exploration modelling; case study examples; implications of integrative method for policy, planning, management and helping to define the science agenda.
