Defining NRV

NRV should be defined across all temporal and spatial scales, and for all NRV types — disturbances, landscape conditions and biological consequences. NRV is not only key to biodiversity but also keeps landscapes resilient, which is important for managing climate change impacts.

Defining NRV

Targets and land use decisions at most scales are driven by administrative boundaries and societal demands and represented by government allocations. Land-use decisions are strongly influenced by existing uses and political considerations, challenging changes that would add an EBM focus. Government-led management direction often requires legislative change that would need to be developed with EBM in mind to consider broad environmental objectives.
