In a given society, it is easier to adapt existing institutions from one purpose to another than to develop them anew (Barrett et al. 2001; Folke et al. 2005). Both arguments may be partially correct. Community-level institutions do spontaneously emerge through self-organization in various parts of the world, and management systems do evolve over time when appropriately nurtured and facilitated (Singleton 1998; Kendrick 2003). Although adaptive co-management cannot be imposed from the top down, its emergence can be assisted by creating a favourable policy environment and through such measures as enabling legislation that recognizes local rights over land and resources.
