As natural resource issues become more complex, particularly in developing world contexts, there is a growing need for adaptive management solutions. However, the skills necessary to deal with these increasingly complex situations are not always forthcoming in many low-income countries. There is also a growing recognition that capacity building activities are limited in their effectiveness. This article suggests a problem-based learning (PBL) approach to capacity building. Using the example of training courses developed to help natural resource management in Guyana, this article highlights how PBL can help enhance the capabilities needed for adaptive management.
