EOI · 12/03/2012 · http://a.eoi.es/1xsn The aim of this open class is to give an introduction to a broader course on Corporate Environmental Management and Life Cycle Performance, whose aim is to teach students why and how companies can improve the environmental performance of their products, services and activities.
Natural Resources Management MOOC
Management of renewable natural resources has turned out to be challenging with mismanagement as a frequent result. To develop student intuition and understanding of ecosystems and management strategies, students work with computer animations, simulators, games, and simulation models. Because learning takes place inside students, the course challenges students to think and develop ideas before they get immediate responses to their suggestions and before watching debriefing videos and reading supplied material (flipped classroom). The course also offers a discussion board. Each chapter starts with challenges to experience practical management, then there is a learning-by-doing section, and finally students apply what they have learnt and may at times compare to real world decisions. The course deals with fisheries, water reservoirs, forests, animal herds, plant growth, climate, spread of technology, product markets and commons problems. Different from most MOOC course offered by Harvard, Yale, Stanford, MIT and others, the course offers full course credits (from the University of Bergen, Norway) after finishing course assignments and having taken an online exam. There is no tuition fee. The course is offered at the graduate level. The course is offered in fall and spring semesters.

Every day, Americans rely on fresh water supplies to irrigate crops, support manufacturing, and generate power, in addition to keeping safe drinking water flowing from the tap. While essential to life itself, water can also cause harm. Aging and unreliable infrastructure makes communities susceptible to deadly floods and contaminated drinking water. Proper vision and strategy are essential for using, protecting, and managing our water resources.

Scenario Planning for Environmental Management
This Simpleshow created by the James Hutton Institute helps to explain Scenario Planning for Environmental Management. It has been produced as part of the EU funded project COMET-LA (COmmunity-based Management of EnvironmenTal challenges in Latin America, http://www.comet-la.eu), a project that studied approaches to support sustainable community-based management of natural resources in a context of climate change and increasing competition for resource use. A key to supporting planning today is to understand how pressures such as climate change can affect future natural systems and societies. Considering the connections between environmental, economic and social issues is fundamental for prosperity and sustainability, with consequent implications for any debates about future land use and environmental management. Scenario planning can assist with this. A scenario is a coherent, internally consistent, and plausible description of a possible future state (including both social and natural aspects). It is not a forecast; rather, each scenario is one alternative image of how the future can unfold. The process should encourage consideration of the interactions between pressures or drivers from across levels. Scenario-planning can take a variety of forms, and is certainly not a ‘panacea’ for all problems, but we believe that it has potential to help tackle many environmental challenges. The process of developing scenarios is thought to be useful for aiding partnerships to make explicit, share and reconcile different knowledges, expectations and aspirations. The James Hutton Institute is carrying out research on other applications and challenges associated with scenario planning for environmental management: visit http://www.hutton.ac.uk to find out more.

SRM 2015: Implementing AIM-based Monitoring for Natural Resource Management
This presentation was given at the 2015 meeting of the Society for Range Management during the BLM AIM Symposium by Jason Karl. The AIM strategy is a powerful one for informing management decisions and characterizing resources, but only if the program or project is designed to take advantage of it appropriately. There is a workflow for thinking through each step of the design process that takes into account the local capabilities and needs and continuously re-evaluates earlier decisions using later decisions to refine them. The major steps for a monitoring program are: defining the monitoring needs, designing the monitoring, implementing the monitoring, maintaining the monitoring, and taking long-term monitoring into account.

Media Strategies for Preserving Natural and Cultural Resources
December 9, 2016 "Media Strategies for Preserving Natural and Cultural Resources: A NPS and CSU Department of Journalism and Media Communication collaboration" The National Park Service manages all national parks in the U.S., as well as national monuments, and other historic and conservation properties. What role do media and communication play in helping the NPS meet its mission of preserving the ecology and history of the places it manages, while ensuring that these spaces are always available for the use and enjoyment of the public? Colorado State University’s Department of Journalism and Media Communication is exploring answers to this question. Learn about their ongoing research efforts, which cover topics ranging from communication to prevent unsafe wildlife selfies, to how NPS employees apply scientific information to management, to the role of Facebook and Instagram in the “Find Your Park” 100th anniversary campaign. The seminar consists of 2 presentations: Presentation 1 Dr. Ashley A. Anderson, CSU Department of Journalism and Media Communication Title: Communicating science to the National Parks: Assessing resource managers’ needs, preferences, and use of scientific information sources Abstract:The National Parks Omnibus ManagementAct of 1998 established a mandate for the use of scientific research in the management of parks. This study analyzes the use of scientific reports from the Natural Resource Stewardship and Science Directorate (NRSS) in the management of park resources with in-depth interviews of those involved in decision-making around park resources. The study sample includes 25 individuals from parks in each of the 7 National Park Service regions. It evaluates the managers’ information practices – including familiarity with and access to various information sources, information preferences, and implementation of information in strategic planning decisions. This presentation will address preliminary findings of these interviews and discuss possible implications. Presentation 2 Dr. Joseph G. Champ, CSU’s Department of Journalism and Media Communication Emily Johnson, PhD candidate, CSU Department of Journalism and Media Communication Sara Melena, Education Specialist, National Park Service, Office of Education and Outreach, NRSS Centennial Coordinator Title: Identity, place, and social media: Understanding the role of Facebook and Instagram in the National Park Service’s Centennial ‘Find Your Park’ campaign” Abstract: In 2015, the United States National Park Service launched the “Find Your Park” campaign, a two-year online communication strategy meant to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the NPS, specifically by appealing to the new media communication practices of Millennials, a highly valued demographic category. Champ and Johnson present the results of a new research technique developed to assess communication related to “Find Your Park”. Guided by actor-network theory, and critical-cultural theory, the authors utilized Nvivo qualitative research software to code and map 240 Instagram and Facebook posts from both citizens and National Park Service communicators. Their comparative qualitative analysis visualizes patterned connections between very specific, sign level, elements of the posts, and common overarching narratives.

Dr. Alex Lautensach - "Leaching Scientific Literacy for Sustainable Natural Resource Management"
Dr. Alex Lautensach presents: "Leaching Scientific Literacy for Sustainable Natural Resource Management" At this stage in human history the sustainable management of natural resources has become a critical requirement for a secure future. The absence of sustainable behavior and the resulting global environmental crises are making the urgency of the problem abundantly clear. Widespread scientific illiteracy, cognitive bias, moral ineptitudes and mental habits prevent many people, including political leaders, from acting according to those imperatives. In order to avoid a very bumpy ride for humanity educational efforts must destabilize two guiding myths and replace them with a scientifically informed ethic. (Presentation date: December 3, 2014)

Gender disagregated data in Natural Resource Management
Session#14 Tue 23 October 8:45 to 9:15 30 mins Room 1 GoToWebinar.com 376‐607‐651 Webcast URL https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/271267504076409859 In southern Africa, like the rest of the continent there has been little generation, documentation and access of gender disaggregated data to track progress that has been made on gender mainstreaming and inform future plans and interventions. Where both men and women are involved in decision making in Natural Resource Management (NRM), positive results have been achieved. However there is a gap in documentation of lessons learnt in engaging all groups. Thus, there is need for evidence‐based data on gender mainstreaming in NRM. Providing such evidence will highlight gaps of existing policies and strategies which do not recognize the importance of mainstreaming gender in NRM. Evidence‐based research assists in adoption and replication of effective practices among communities in the region and beyond. Policy makers and other stakeholders will be better informed on the advantages of consulting and involving women at all levels when crafting policies and frameworks of NRM leading to sustainable development. This project enhances the mainstreaming of gender through more structured participation of both women and men in strategy formulation, planning, and implementation of NRM. This involves collecting gender disaggregated data showcasing facts and figures and develop a platform to exchange knowledge and disseminate results widely across river basins. By strengthening gender mainstreaming in WRM the initiative will contribute to the objective 3.5 of the Global Action Plan for Sustainable Development which promotes strengthening and expansion of data on all groups to ensure that no one is left behind. It supports the key actions for this objective which includes the need to improve the production of high‐quality, accessible, timely, reliable and disaggregated data by all characteristics relevant in national contexts to ensure that no one is left behind; Promote the systematic mainstreaming of gender equality in all phases of planning, production and usage of data and statistics.

Participatory Natural Resource Management Program- for SAGY
Introduction WOTR started working in the tribal dominated district of Mandla in Madhya Pradesh with the objective of strengthening the livelihoods through better management of rainwater. Agriculture is the main source of livelihoods for tribal communities in Mandla. Forest produce and cattle rearing are other two sources of earning for the tribes, mostly Gonds, in the district. Till 2007-08 the status of agriculture was not good and people were able to take only one crop that is, Kharif Crop in a year and if the rains were not good then they had no other option but to migrate to Jabalpur, Nagpur, Raipur and other nearby cities in search of livelihoods. Intervention WOTR realized that supporting tribes means helping them in improving their agriculture in a better way and irrigation is the key for improvement. The project started in January 2009 and went on till December 2011.The technical team formed for better irrigation facilities studied geography of the area and possibility of working on developing sustainable model of watershed with community ownership. With their previous experience they realized that ownership will come only if the community is able to contribute and manage the project right from the beginning. Strategy WOTR selected three villages for intervention one in Bijadandi block and two in Narayanganj block of the Mandla district. The strategy was to start the work on watershed development with community involvement in all activities that are planning, execution, review and management. (i) The initial idea was shared with community and the concept was finalized incorporating the feedback of the community; (ii) The organization finalized the design of the watershed and shared the short term and long term benefits with the community; (iii) Lastly the organization proposed that it will work on the proposed project if the community takes the responsibility of starting the work on their owns meaning labour contribution with technical support from WATOR team; Major Activities The intervention included Human Resource Development; Soil and Water Conservation Activities; Drainage Line Treatment; Rejuvenation of Well and Irrigation Systems; and Agriculture Interventions. Impact Benefits to the community includes Wage Employment to the villagers; increase in water table and increase in irrigation; increase in crop production and ability to harvest second crop; income generation activities; doubled Wage rate; increase in forest coverage; and availability of fodder. Beneficiaries include: a. Farmers: Migration has stopped, production and productivity has improved; b. Women: who can now find work in village itself and are able to improve their earning and dependency on traditional money lenders has also reduced; c. Landless Families: Wage opportunity within village has improved; Elements of Sustainability The project implemented by WOTR has made a very good beginning in developing a model of watershed with ensuring community contribution in reality. The project started with dialogue with community, communicated the vision of project to community and started with community contribution. Investment from the project started at least 4 months later when community has contributed the labour worth 4 lakhs in each village. This shows the kind of efforts put in to mobilize community and making things transparent between community and the project team. The approach adopted by the project itself is a model of learning for similar initiatives going on in the country. Ability to Replicate: Project is replicable in other areas for its efforts to mobilise community for participation in discussion, contribution in the project cost and taking the responsibility of management.

The research underpinning this talk draws upon Verdini’s new book Winning Together: The Natural Resource Negotiation Playbook (https://mitpress.mit.edu/books/winning-together), winner of Harvard Law School’s Raiffa Award for best research of the year in negotiation, mediation, decision-making, and dispute resolution. In this talk, Bruno Verdini outlines an approach by which government, private sector, and nongovernmental stakeholders can overcome grievances, break the status quo, trade across differences, and create mutual gains in high-stakes transboundary water, energy, and environmental negotiations. Drawing on his extensive interviews with more than seventy high-ranking negotiators in the United States and Mexico—from presidents and ambassadors to general managers, technical experts, and nongovernmental advocates—and building upon theoretical and empirical findings, Verdini offers advice for practitioners on effective negotiation and dispute resolution strategies that avoid the presumption that there are not enough resources to go around and that one side must win while the other must inevitably lose. Followed by a Q&A with MITEI Communications Director, Emily Dahl. This talk was presented on April 10, 2018. 3 questions with Verdini: http://energy.mit.edu/news/3q-winning-together-in-natural-resources-negotiation-and-leadership/ Listen to this talk as a podcast: Apple Podcasts: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/u-s-mexico-natural-resource-management-partnerships/id1348837449?i=1000408863643&mt=2 Google Play: https://play.google.com/music/m/D2cpf7hltqo5ht62dnudzdfl5qm?t=US_-_Mexico_natural_resource_management_partnerships_Tearing_down_walls-MIT_Energy_Initiative SoundCloud: https://soundcloud.com/mitenergy/us-mexico-natural-resource-management-partnerships-tearing-down-walls More options: http://energy.mit.edu/podcast About the speaker: Bruno Verdini is executive director of the MIT-Harvard Mexico Negotiation Program and a lecturer in urban planning and negotiation at MIT’s School of Architecture and Planning.

SRM 2015: Monitoring for Adaptive Management: Introduction to the BLM AIM Strategy
This presentation was given at the 2015 meeting of the Society for Range Management during the BLM AIM Symposium by Emily Kachergis. The AIM strategy is a BLM approach to gathering data and applying it to management at multiple scales for diverse resources on federal lands. AIM is intended to inform initial management decisions and then help to adapt those to changing conditions in resources over time. AIM establishes a framework with a standard set of quantitative data-gathering techniques across the BLM for specific, major indicators of resource and landscape conditions using statistically valid sampling designs. This means that data from AIM projects and programs can be pooled and shared between offices and organizations to characterize large tracts of land.
