(p.1) 1 Leaders and Policy in a Contested Landscape
Ensuring Greater Yellowstone's Future

This chapter explains how the leaders of the Yellowstone region should actively work toward more unified, organic policies, and those who will be able to transition the whole region toward a more sustainable management of its human and natural resources. Yellowstone has been described as a special place, a park, a region, and finally, an idea. Leaders in greater Yellowstone must actively join in the effort to move toward sustainability, which, in this region, is often framed in the language of transboundary or ecosystem management, and should design strategies and institutions that can better integrate incomplete knowledge with experimental action into programs of adaptive management and learning. The Greater Yellowstone Coordinating Committee and NGOs can lead this transition, but much depends on what the region's leaders do in the near future.

Keywords:   Yellowstone region, leaders, sustainable management, adaptive management, ecosystem management
