Abstract

In the global economy, the commodification of nature and the territorialization practices of nation-states pose formidable challenges to sustainable uses of natural resources. Certain environmental problems such as growth management and residential sprawl have proved to be intractable issues in our existing political processes. This case study of grazing and growth conflicts in Arizona demonstrates that intractable environmental problems may actually be emergent properties of complex systems, requiring new political approaches that foster collaboration and knowledge sharing between disputing stakeholders. One such multi-stakeholder collaboration in Arizona revealed that attempts to remove grazing from Arizona landscapes could actually be detrimental to biodiversity, contrary to the expectations of grazing critics.1.
