  13. 13. 13 Recommendations • We strongly recommend environmentalists to consider the first approach – Incentive based policies to deal with the growingly intensive activities of anti- environmental movement. • Focus on diversifying participants, especially high profile figures • Proactively involve the media of different channels • Considering incentive-based policies as the laying cornerstone for the long term approach of Ecosystem Based Management CMU Australia. Adelaide 2012. Class Materials, for Educational purposes only.
  14. 14. 14 Sensitivity Analysis • As the total score of Community based decision making approach is 42, which is quite close to Incentive Based Policies approach, it may trigger the internal debates between environmentalists. • The Incentive based policies approach can be manipulated or driven by the influential entrepreneurs to serve their own interests. • Possible backlash may emerge due to the inefficiency of policy making and implementation.
