As New in As New jacket. Book The book looks like new, unread and clean. Edges are sharp and fine. No tears or creases. No stains, writing or reminder marks. The binding is straight and tight. The book itself is very nice. Conflict and uncertainty are central themes in resource management. On the one hand, conflict arises because different interests--business and industry, environmental groups, First Nations, the general public, local communities with resource-based economies--want different things from the environment. On the other, governments must try to resolve those conflicts on the basis of scientific models and data that are often uncertain at best. In each case, resource managers must try to find the best balance they can among solutions that can never be perfect. This third edition of Resource and Environmental Management in Canada brings together contributions from more than two dozen specialists in the field. It is tailored specifically for university students and has four overall goals: to explain how the resource management process works; to illustrate the variety of strategies used; to outline the various technical and non-technical considerations that influence decisions; and to emphasize the trade offs that must be made to accommodate a broad range of legitimate societal interest.
