Adaptive Collaborative Management (ACM) is an integrative approach for implementing
sustainable management of natural resources, based on a main hypothesis, that is: if
there is a high degree of collaboration between stakeholders combined with a high
adaptiveness of management systems, the result will be a higher degree of human well
being and ecological sustainability. A worldwide network under the umbrella of the
Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR) is engaged in researching the
potential and methodological aspects related to ACM. Communication is fundamental
for facilitating the collaboration between the stakeholders. To support this
communication and to enable a transparent and efficient discussion about sustainable
forest management by rural communities, we developed an ACM set of criteria and
indicators (C&I), which is presented here.
