The environmental problems we are facing now are Wicked Problems. Rittel and Webber first described complex issues using the term ‘Wicked Problems’. They developed 10 criteria to describe a Wicked Problem. (see text box) Global warming can’t be perceived, for example, as just an environmental issue; it incorporates various problems like social issues and economic and political problems, as well. This is the case for environmental problems as Rittel and Webber described Wicked Problems to be ‘a symptom of another problem’. These grand societal challenges are so complex that one person or discipline can’t solve them; it requires cooperation. The position of Wicked Problems therefore succinctly describe the context in which must consider the ecology and I apply this framework to my research.
