This chapter examines the role of science and of knowledge in environmental and resource management and in ecological governance. It discusses the criteria for knowledge-based and democratic ecological governance and describes the organising knowledge for sustainable resource governance. It considers solution-oriented research to develop green technology and the political fight to control strategic environmental research. This chapter stresses the need to move towards a multi-faceted relationship between science, politics and market actors and highlights the importance of monitoring and providing common knowledge for policy-making and evaluation.

Keywords:   ecological governance, science, knowledge, resource management, sustainable resource governance, environmental research, policy-making
