Uncertainty, knowledge and actor agency in nature conservation: A systematic qualitative review and assessment

Andersson, Erik

The ENVISION literature review on uncertainty with conservation planning and managemet is made up by several tiers, where Deliverable 4.1 constitute tie A, and the latter steps under development to support and feed into the later WP 4 deliverables and final publications:

Overview: Approaches, frameworks and strategies to addressing uncertainty in formal nature protection and conservation. The first review provides information on current emphasis, gaps, or indications where there might be an alternative literature that needs to be identified and explored (relevant knowledge not yet fully connected to conservation planning).

Qualitative analysis (next step – towards D4.3): What uncertainties are recognised and what remedies are suggested (qualitative systematic review)

  • Potential frameworks: IPBES, CAS

  • Evidence, actors and governance

  • Forecasting and strategy

  • Boundary conditions

  • Cross scale and cross boundary interactions

  • Management and practice

  • Drivers

Application in practice (still to be decided): Existing frameworks in our case study countries/EU and USA (policy/document analysis (in combination with limited systematic reviews)) and how they treat the emergent themes from A and B.

  • Natura 2000

  • National Parks

  • MAB

  • National nature protection frameworks
