To address rapidly changing and uncertain environmental and social change on large landscapes/seascapes, conservation organizations need to overcome barriers to collaboration and create governance structures that integrate ecological, biological and physical sciences with social science insight and refine decisions based on new information. This article reinforces the need for institutionalization of adaptive co-governance of social–ecological systems and suggests that Landscape Conservation Cooperatives (LCCs) are bridging entities within a broader co-governance framework. LCCs, a network of conservation organizations both governmental and nongovernmental, have great potential to facilitate conservation of rapidly changing social–ecological systems by providing structure and incentives for collaboration and shared learning.

Opportunities for synergy between state offices of outdoor recreation and federal land-management agencies, the outdoor recreation industry, nongovernmental organizations, and local outdoor recreation providers.
The potential impacts of climate change are serious challenges to the management of public lands.
Together, NCCWSC and the CSCs provide resource managers and other stakeholders with information and decision-making tools to respond to the effects of climate change on fish, wildlife, ecosystems, and the communities they support. Through close collaboration with managers and scientists inside and outside of government, NCCWSC and the CSCs deliver science to address stakeholder-defined priority climate needs.

Water Crises and Governance critically examines the relationship between water crises and governance in the face of challenges to provide water for growing human demand and environmental needs.
Natural resource professionals involved in multi-party collaborative decision processes face increasingly complex decisions where underlying conflict can undermine their efficacy if unknown or inappropriately addressed. Conflict transformation encompasses managing and resolving conflict by harnessing the energy inherent in conflicts to motivate change and improvement not only of the decision but also of the institutions and platforms for implementation.
