Due to the synergistic and antagonistic relationships that exist in the environmental policy arena, environmental policies cannot be treated in isolation (Hayes, 2006). The concept of integrated environmental management serves as a useful activity to enhance the ability to manage a resource that is affected by anthropogenic activities (Pahl-Wostl, 2007). Integrated environmental management allows for a broad perspective to be taken, whereby all the possible trade-offs and benefits are considered at various spatial and temporal scales (Pahl-Wostl, 2007). The atmospheric composition of the earth is greatly impacted on by anthropogenic emissions that lead to a variety of environmental management concerns.
