Ecosystem-based management (EBM) is an integrated approach that considers interactions between humans and the environment. The goal of EBM is to sustainably manage natural resources and biodiversity by maintaining ecosystem processes, functions and services.
This guide seeks to inform and influence conservation practice in the tropical Western Pacific and to share lessons from the region with conservation practitioners around the world, particularly in developing nations where EBM approaches used in industrialised countries may not be feasible or appropriate. EBM can be applied at a range of scales and context at any stage in the planning process for site-based projects to national policies and programmes.
