Sustainable Resource Management recognizes that interactions between resources, as well as between resource users, have a significant impact on any management solution. It therefore seeks to balance the social, economic and environmental demands on resources such that their use is more sustainable and conflicts are reduced. This programme addresses questions such as: Why are natural resources frequently over-used? How can we manage them better? Who or what gets priority treatment? It is aimed at people who want to develop a career in governmental and non-governmental bodies with responsibility for environmental planning, allocating resources, and overseeing the impact of resource-management decisions.
