Adaptive Co-Management Case Study

Ecosystem Based Management (EBM) in Gwaii Haanas

Summary of EBM in Gwaii Haanas

The Gwaii Haanas context provides an excellent example of adaptive and collaborative management framed by principles of Indigenous governance. The experience with Gwaii Haanas provides a model for successful collaboration in other contexts. The Land Sea People plan is a fundamental document as it is an outcome of collaboration between the Haida, the Government of Canada, and industry. Initiatives guided by the LSP plan, like the EBM evaluation framework, reflect the collaborative principles and aim to meet cultural, socio-economic, governance, and ecological objectives
