Adaptive management

Adaptive management (AM), also known as adaptive resource management (ARM), is a structured, iterativedecision making in the face of uncertainty, with an aim to reducing uncertainty over time via system monitoring. In this way, decision making simultaneously maximizes one or more resource objectives and, either passively or actively, accrues information needed to improve future management. AM is often characterized as “learning by doing.” Wikipedia.

The concept was an idea of C.S. “Buzz” Holling, one of the people behind the Resillience Science blog.
