Environmental governance and human-nature interactions : A network perspective

Achieving effective, sustainable environmental governance requires a better understanding of the causes and consequences of the complex patterns of interdependencies connecting people and ecosystems. Network thinking provides a way to make these patterns of interdependencies the subject of empirical enquiry. In this talk I will demonstrate how multilevel social-ecological network modelling has been used to study small-scale fisheries and agriculture. I will also show how this multilevel network approach can be used to investigate if and how varying access to environmental resources can drive both conflict and collaboration among resource users.
