These guidelines have arisen from a perceived need to synthesise, in an accessible manner, the experiences gained from trying to implement an adaptive co-management approach to fisheries management in Lao PDR, Vietnam, Thailand, Cambodia and West Bengal in India. Starting in 1999, the Adaptive Learning projects have developed, tested and evaluated the approach in a range of resource systems and some of the lessons learnt are described in this short publication. Versions are also provided in Khmer, Bangladeshi, Vietnamese and Lao.
