- Adaptive Collaborative Management (ACM) is a transformative problem-solving and management approach to learn and act collectively to systematically adapt to change and improve management outcomes.
- Women are crucial actors in forest management, yet their involvement in decision making has not kept pace with reforms in broader political and economic systems.
- This manual specifically addresses how to encourage the broader participation of women in decision making through ACM.
- We include practical guidance and examples of how to apply ACM methods in communities and how to teach those methods to others.
- We present an overview of ACM concepts, suggested steps and activities, tips, case studies and recommendations of additional resources.
- The ideas and activities that we present here come from field practitioners and community members who are managing forests, or who want to manage them better.
- This manual can also be applied to the management of a wide range of natural resources, such as natural forests, planted forests, crops, gardens, water or animals.
