Abstract

Managing natural resources is difficult because of the dynamically complex interactions between socioeconomic and ecological systems. These valuable resources are therefore only effective stewards if these interactions are well understood to avoid policy resistance. Historically, policy development in natural resources management (NRM) has responded to current events or immediate problems, with less concern for how these events of problems transpired and their underlying causes. This chapter discusses the benefits of using a system dynamics approach to develop and assess NRM policy through the lens of a case study in Vietnam. This real-life example highlights the potential for policy resistance and unintended consequences when managing natural resources systems, and therefore highlight the necessity of system dynamics in policy formulation.
