AbstractResource management decisions cannot be properly made based upon single use but must give full consideration to alternative uses or combinations of uses. The impact of uses upon resources must be evaluated. The soundness of management decisions must be evaluated on the basis of their impact upon human welfare. A philosophy of integrated resource management will reflect concern for both resources and people.
