The Vulnerability Response Framework

The Vulnerability Response Framework

(p.17) 2 The Vulnerability Response Framework
Adaptive Governance

D. G. Webster

The MIT Press

This chapter focuses on the use of economic vulnerability as an indicator for determining national responses to international management of the highly migratory species of fish. The vulnerability response framework is an indicator that determines the country which will respond first to international management efforts. The satisfying assumption is considered the basis of the vulnerability approach to international fish management efforts, has significant analytical advantages, and is realistic in nature. It is also forceful and adaptive in nature, focusing on the factors driving change in a system along with determinants of continuity, and encourages the incorporation of complexity and judgment into the decision-making process.

Keywords:   economic vulnerability, national responses, analytical advantages, determinants of continuity
