Evaluation of Integrated Management Initiatives

By Livia Bizikova, Dimple Roy, Darren A. Swanson on June 6, 2011

This paper summarizes key definitions of the integrated place-based approaches applied in Canada and internationally, followed by an overview of key goals and targets of completed integrated place-based management (IPM) initiatives in order to better understand what constitutes success.

We include an overview of currently applied monitoring approaches and indicators in the context of IPM initiatives. The paper concludes with suggestions for the potential future applications of monitoring frameworks and approaches, especially with regard to their ability to assist in the quality of the environment and their ability to measure long-term impacts of IPM projects.
