Description

This chapter examines the potential that collaboration holds for operationalizing sustainable recreation management on public lands. Additionally, we synthesize the professional and academic literature on collaboration and partnerships to spotlight promising new conceptual frameworks, analytic tools, and management best practices that can contribute to this goal. Finally, we identify a research agenda that can assess the efficacy of collaborative approaches to outdoor recreation governance, planning, and management. Continuous monitoring of collaboration dynamics, capacity, structures, and outcomes can contribute to sustainable recreation management into the future.
