EBM Element:


Collaborating with neighbours is the key to eliminating “cumulative effects” — a human-created outcome of planning silos. In this case, a “neighbour” can take one of three forms: overlapping, embedded, or adjacent. As the number of potential overlaps decreases on a landbase, the closer one is to an EBM ideal.

Challenges &
Opportunities to EBM


There are no requirements or incentives for managers to work with neighbours to coordinate EBM across administrative boundaries that encompass larger ecological units. This creates a challenge for partnering. The few examples that exist focus on improving EBM implementation and outcomes towards specific threats including species at risk, fire, and forest insects.
