What is adaptive management's role in addressing extremes?

The IUGLS investigated the role that adaptive management can play in helping interests in the upper Great Lakes basin better anticipate and respond to future extreme water levels. Managing potential risks under an uncertain future is a challenge both for managers of water levels and flows and for those adapting to water levels and flows. The more they can anticipate what to expect, the better prepared they can be. Adaptive management is a process of “learning while doing.” It provides a structured, iterative approach for improving actions through long-term monitoring, modelling and assessment, so that decisions can be reviewed, adjusted and revised as new information and knowledge become available and/or as conditions change.
