Goal of the course is to provide students with fundamental theory and methods that will allow them to identify some of the potential problems and pitfalls associated with community-based environmental management (CBEM) initiatives, both domestically and internationally, along with tools necessary to create and manage their own projects. To accomplish this, course will combine readings and discussion of academic literature with presentations of specific CBEM case studies, guest speakers, and interactions with local CBEM projects.
