Abstract

Planning links human and natural systems in the urban-rural interface by engaging people in consideration of the future of natural resources. We review evolving ideas about what planning entails, who it involves, and what its outcomes should be. Sense of place, collaboration, emergent planning, and other new developments in planning are discussed. Smaller plans, shorter time horizons, and broader, more local involvement in planning processes are trends in resource management planning with potential for the dynamic landscapes of the urban-rural interface.
