[Extract] Re-scaling the governance of environment and natural resources to the regional level is a major public policy development in Australia and many countries around the world. In western Europe and North America, the case for a 'new regionalism' affecting the governance of other sectors is also popularly advanced and, in less developed countries, regionalisation often precedes (or is substituted for) decentralisation (for example, see Lane and Morrison forthcoming; Kubler and Schwab, 2007). Likewise, many countries around the world are also experiencing the replacement of 'pure' (e.g. top-down, regulatory) modes of government with 'hybrid' modes of 'governance' (e.g. market-based instruments and co-management and partnership arrangements) (Lemos and Agrawal 2006; Rhodes 1997; Papadakis and Grant 2003).
