|COURSE OBJECTIVES:||This course examines various ways in which humans plan for and/or manage the resources found in God’s creation. The focus is on contemporary concepts and methods used to conserve, develop and manage environmental resources. We will investigate how these are applied to decision making in resource-based activities such as fisheries, agriculture, forestry, wildlife and parks. We will also examine conflict and uncertainty in resource management and cross-cutting issues such as resource rights, gender and sustainability governance. Case studies and field trips are emphasized.|
