Managing Natural Resources in British Columbia

Markets, Regulations, and Sustainable Development

How must natural resource sectors change to achieve sustainable development in British Columbia? What reforms can be made to 'institutions' in order to assist these changes? What new policy instruments can be introduced? What institutions and instruments are no longer useful? These questions are the topic of hot debate in British Columbia and elsewhere. Managing Natural Resources in British Columbia grapples with these questions and suggests some preliminary answers.
