Wicked Problems

Printer-friendly versionPDF version
Glossary Definition: 

Urgent problems that are ill-defined, dynamic, complex, public, and often intractable, typically related to global climate change, water resource management, biodiversity, and sustainable development. A key attribute of such problems is that there is not necessarily a single solution, as social consensus on priorities, outcomes, and modes of action has often not been reached.
