Big Questions in HDNRM
  • WHY
  • do we manage natural resources?
  • ...and...
  • HOW
  • do we manage natural resources?

11
What is HDNRM?
  • ...the application of social science theory and
    methods to help understand the cultural,
    sociological, psychological, economic,
    biological, and physical aspects of natural
    resource management and environmental problem
    solving. Fulton, Nelson, Anderson, Lime

12
What is HDNRM?
  • ...an area of investigation which attempts to
    describe, predict, understand and affect human
    thought and action toward natural environments
    and to acquire such understanding for the primary
    purpose of improving stewardship of natural
    resources. Human dimensions research builds on
    concepts and theories from several disciplines
    including sociology, psychology, economics,
    anthropology, geography, political science,
    marketing, and education. University of
    Delaware Sea Grant

Resource Conflict
  • Conflict is when the behavior of an individual or
    group interferes with the goals of another
    individual or group
  • Goal may be tangible (e.g. market valuation) or
    intangible (e.g. desired experience)

18
Resource use conflicts
  • Outdoor recreation
  • Wilderness
  • Wildlife and fish habitat
  • Range
  • Timber
  • Watershed
  • Human and community development
  • Oil, gas and minerals
  • Cultural resources
  • Complementary
  • Competitive
  • Supplementary

19
Dual mandate of HDNRM
  • Providing a quality user experience
  • Protecting the quality of the environment and/or
    resource base

20
Goal of HDNRM is balancing acceptable use with
protection of the dependent natural resources
21
What is a Resource?
  • Resources are productive functions and operations
    performed by tangible substances when used to
    satisfy a given end or defined want. Resources
    explicitly require objectives and planning agents
    (managers).

22
Key factors of natural resources
23
Key factors of natural resources
  • Utility
  • Scarcity

24
Classes of natural resources
  • Stock
  • Flow
  • Constant
  • Cyclical
  • Variable

25
Stock or Flow?
26
Why are natural resourcesso controversial?
27
Preservation Conservation Exploitation
28
Simple definition of conservation
  • A way that we manage our natural resources for
    sustained output without depleting them and/or
    damaging the resource base

29
Conservation of stock vs. flow natural resources
The Conservation Continuum
0 amount used over time 100
0 rate of use over time 100

Conservation of stock vs. flow natural resources
The Conservation Continuum
Flow Natural Resources
0 amount used over time 100
0 rate of use over time 100
34
Conservation of stock vs. flow natural resources
  • Conservation generally requires decreases in
    present rates of use for stock and carefully
    controlled rates of use for flow resources

35
Examples of management tools that can conserve
natural resources
  • Bag or creel limits
  • Court injunctions
  • Permit systems
  • Hunting seasons
  • Reserves
  • Education
  • Preservation

36
What is preservationof natural resources?
37
Preservation
  • A management approach which attempts to maintain
    natural ecological integrity and processes
    through regulation of factors which would prove
    to be disruptive

38
Ecosystem
  • A community of organisms and their physical
    environment interacting as an ecological system
  • Preservation is a management approach which
    attempts to maintain natural ecological integrity
    and processes through regulation of factors which
    would prove to be disruptive

Carrying Capacity
  • The maximum population size that can be sustained
    by an environment

42
Carrying Capacity
  • The maximum population size that can be sustained
    by an environment

43
Weakness of CC in HDNRM
  • Finding a single ecological carrying capacity
    that accommodates ecological, social and
    managerial demands

44
General Dimensions of Carrying Capacity in HDNRM

45
The future of Human Dimensions of Natural
Resource ManagementThe Precautionary Principle
46
Precautionary Principle
  • When an activity raises threats of harm to human
    health or the environment, precautionary measures
    should be taken even if some cause and effect
    relationships are not fully established
    scientifically.
