Definition of EBM?
EBM is a collaborative, integrated, science-based approach to the management of natural resources that focuses on the health and resilience of entire ecosystems — while allowing for sustainable human use of the goods and services they provide.
The Path to Positive Change
Change is not easy. Current forestry rules and practices can prevent positive change from being introduced. As part of our work to explore EBM in the boreal forest, we are interviewing industry leaders in forestry companies and government departments. We are asking them what challenges and opportunities they see in using EBM in forestry. This project will help us find a path to positive change along the EBM journey. As we describe EBM elements, we will also point out the challenges to its adoption.
