Abstract

Environmental governance systems must adapt to address increased uncertainty and new social-ecological conditions posed by stressors like climate change. This chapter presents several principles of social cognition and decision-making that influence adaptive governance. The principles are illustrated with examples from six US river basins. Future research opportunities are also outlined.

Keywords

Adaptive governance Cognition Cooperation Environmental law Legitimacy Social decision making
