Conference description

Conference proceedings now available.  Click HERE to download the PDF.

During this conference we will examine how to utilize human dimensions research and methods to help resource practitioners resolve “wicked problems” in southeastern BC. Examples of important human dimensions topics include: environmental assessment processes, Aboriginal management of natural resources, human-wildlife conflicts, Columbia Watershed governance, land use management, access management, etc.

Through an evening keynote address, 1.5 days of presentations, a poster session, dialogue opportunities, field-trips and a post-conference course, this conference will strengthen the ability of managers and practitioners to incorporate human dimensions into the many aspects of natural resource management. A conference summary will be available on the CMI website after the event.
