Interactive governance has been described as relating to all interactions involved, solving environmental problems and creating societal opportunities such as the formulation and application of principles and taking care of institutions (Kooiman et al. 2005, p. 17). This ‘whole of interactions’ (Kooiman et al. 2005, p. 17), important in the context of social-ecological systems, includes social-social, ecological- ecological and social-ecological interlinkages, each of them bidirectional.
To further integrate such diverse interaction types into one network analysis and directly applying this network perspective in environmental governance a pilot study is being conducted in the area of Babitonga Bay, Santa Catarina, South Brazil.
In the scope of this study data had been collected on the organizational level, using ecosystems or parts of those as ecological counterparts to organizations in the realm of the social dimension. Here the interactions are defined as, in the widest sense, governance-relevant contacts between the actors, being either social or ecological. The different types of these contacts and their purpose were explored. On this basis the regional resource management focused social-ecological networks from the periods 2013-2015 and 2015-2017 are explored, analyzed and compared. Results will be used in the process of designing a participatorily developed integrated ecosystem management plan for Babitonga Bay. In a subsequent step we will examine how the application of SENA knowledge during the design and implementation of an ecosystem management plan affects the effectiveness of environmental governance in the study area.
