Adaptive Management

Adaptive management is a planning process that provides a structured, iterative approach for improving actions through long-term monitoring, modelling and assessment. It is a process of "learning while doing", allowing decisions to be reviewed, adjusted and revised as conditions change and as new information and knowledge becomes available. The International Upper Great Lakes Study considered the role adaptive management can play in helping interests in the upper Great Lakes better anticipate and respond to future extreme water levels. A long-term adaptive management strategy was developed, focusing on ongoing monitoring and modelling required to gain a greater understanding of potential extreme conditions in the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence River system; appropriate adaptive actions and how and when such actions should be applied and adjusted to reduce risks posed by extremes; and the governance structure required to implement and oversee such a strategy.
