Hence, in its search and evaluation of case studies, this inquiry might look to learn from: • • • • • examples of instruments used organizational structures and processes established new or different social constructions of problem sets strategies used for raising the agenda status of issues the mechanisms built into institutional arrangements that have promoted learning and innovation in these areas. 18 It follows that, rather than just noting that ‘success’ has been attained by a certain policy in a given context, evaluation must attempt to understand why the institutional arrangement had the observed effect in its particular social, economic, environmental and institutional context.

Policy processes involve mechanisms and structures dedicated to policy formulation, implementation design, and policy evaluation and maintenance. Processes may be ongoing, lengthy or of short duration. In areas where policy goals are evolving and uncertainty prevails with respect to the current or future state of a resource and impacts of its use – as is often the case with sustainability issues – complex ongoing process ‘rounds’ are required to assess new information and update policy settings.
