Adaptive Governance and Policy-Making

The complexity and uncertainty of sustainable development demands that our systems of governance and our policies be adaptive. If these systems are not adaptive, they run the risk of not achieving their purpose. In fact, instead of helping, governance and policy that are not adaptive could actually hinder the ability of households, communities and businesses to cope with and adapt to change.
