Abstract There is growing recognition that coastal water quality is interdependent with agricultural management in coastal catchments. Economic-incentive-based instruments can be used to internalize the negative externalities from coastal water pollution. Bio-physical and socio-economic heterogeneity across farms is expected to be an important factor in explaining differing rates of adoption of management practices. This paper hypothesises that: i) different types of farmers are likely to respon...

Aboriginal participation in water resources decision making in Australia is similar when compared with Indigenous peoples' experiences in other common law countries such as the United States and Canada; however, this process has taken different paths. This paper provides a review of the literature detailing current legislative policies and practices and offers case studies to highlight and contrast Indigenous peoples' involvement in water resources planning and management in Australia and North ...

Initiatives to manage landscapes for both biodiversity protection and sustainable development commonly employ participatory methods to exploit the knowledge of citizens. We review five examples of citizen groups engaging with landscape scale conservation initiatives to contribute their knowledge, collect data for monitoring programs, study systems to detect patterns, and test hypotheses on aspects of landscape dynamics. Three are from landscape interventions that deliberately target biodiversity...

Landscape-scale approaches are emerging as central to ecosystem management and biodiversity conservation globally, triggering the requirement for collaboration between multiple actors and associated risks including knowledge asymmetries; institutional fragmentation; uncertainty; power imbalances; “invisible” slow-changing variables; and entrenched socio-economic inequities. While social science has elucidated some dimensions required for effective collaboration, little is known about how collabo...

Researchers and practitioners with an interest in a holistic conception of landscape argue for more deliberate approaches to plan, develop and manage landscapes (e.g. Beilin et al. 2012; Bohnet 2008; Dramstad and Fjellstad 2011, 2013; Musacchio 2009, 2013; Pearson and McAlpine 2010; Potschin and Haines-Young 2006; Tress et al. 2003; Wu 2013). These scholars argue that in order for landscapes to be considered sustainable they must fulfil multiple functions and values, including the provision of h...

The sustainability of local landscapes is subject to multiple interpretations of what it is to be ‘sustainable’, at what scale and in whose terms. In the face of global economic pressures for production, extraction and tourism, our attention is drawn to how we can re-imagine and conceptualise the local with a lens that integrates culture-production-place as integral within Nature, providing opportunities for a different view of what is possible. Using a critical system’s approach and incorporati...

Worldwide natural landscapes are being replaced by human-dominated landscapes. A main feature is the human imprint that shapes and re-shapes these landscapes and reflects the socio-economic, political and cultural conditions as well as needs and values of a particular society at a given time. Some of these landscapes are considered cultural landscapes, in particular those that evolved over long periods of time and created biologically and culturally diverse landscapes with characteristic landsca...
