This paper proposes an analytical framework for environmental management, in which major consideration is paid to the construction of meta-control systems for environmental regulation. Meta-control mechanisms are essential for viable control theory. A formalization of meta-control systems is also of major interest as a clue to cope with the emergence of uncertainty, unpredictability and unfalsifiability as environmental issues. Our regulatory approach may be better identified with the ability to understand how societies can be viable over time in response to environmental change. Rather than ensuring that regulations lead social, economic and environmental systems to desired states, the emphasis will be on how the systems can adapt to unpredicted fluctuations in the environment.
