Up or down with the ecology cycle? Strategies for temporally rational ecological governance
in Sweden and ecological governance

This chapter focuses on the so-called ecology cycle and Sweden's strategies for temporally rational ecological governance. It discusses the criteria for temporally rational ecological governance and relevance of land use planning and restrictions for ecological governance. This chapter proposes management by objectives (MBO) as a flexible way of moving towards commonly formulated and shared views of a future state of affairs. It also argues that temporally rational ecological governance is not just about how to arrange political institutions to take account of different life cycles and time scales important to the balance of ecosystems, it is also about ‘just in time’ political accountability.
