Abstract : Vice President Gore's National Performance Review recommended that federal agencies adopt 'a proactive approach to ensuring a sustainable economy and a sustainable environment through ecosystem management.' The link between a healthy economy and a healthy environment has highlighted the need to actively maintain our natural infrastructure before problems arise, as we do with our highways and bridges. The Interagency Ecosystem Management Task Force was established to implement an ecosystem approach to environmental management.
