Adaptive management is a process that recognises the inherent uncertainties of dynamic, and unpredictable ecosystems, and tests these uncertainties to progressively improve management. This process brings together the disciplines of management and decision science so that management interventions are designed to elicit scientifically measurable results that are analysed to inform future management decisions. Adaptive management acknowledges that many factors influence the condition of an ecosystem outside the manager’s jurisdiction, requiring a broad, holistic or strategic approach. A rigorous step-by-step process defines the desired condition (i.e. objective/goal) of the protected area and develops management options that are then implemented and evaluated in relation to progress toward that goal.
