In chapter 9, Bingham introduces the Holistic Management (HM) Model, an approach developed specifically for open range animal husbandry, but well adapted to provide intuitive analyses, insights and decision-making information for community-based management of natural resources. Consistent with the SANREM approach, this holistic methodology was introduced to scientists and community members in order to facilitate diagnostics of and behavioral change in the management of the natural resource base in the Commune of Madiama. He describes how HM has been a source of tension between scientists and HM promoters, but has also led to innovative attempts at changing resource management within the community.
