Abstract

The National Research Agenda presents a coordinated vision for research within NRCan-CFS to address cumulative effects occurring in Canada’s forests. It is a collaborative effort that builds on past, present, and future research, and the knowledge and tools needed over the next decade for on-the-ground and strategic decision making. This Research Agenda focuses on developing science-based decision-making tools that will help land managers and decision makers prepare for and respond to the different challenges regions experience. It recognizes the importance of integration of Indigenous knowledge and values, and the need to proactively develop tools to effectively manage increasingly complex landscapes. It will also help land managers implement appropriate strategies to optimize mitigation solutions at the landscape and site levels. Outputs of this research agenda will help ensure that environmental aspects are considered in resource development, and will help maintain the environmental reputation of the natural resource sector, ensuring competitiveness.

NRCan-CFS will lead in implementing this Research Agenda. Success, however, will depend on strong partnerships with other federal departments, Indigenous peoples, academia, industry, and governmental and nongovernmental partners to achieve the strategic objectives identified in this document. This Research Agenda reflects national interests and priorities for the next 10 years, and may be revisited to adjust its goals and needs as new issues and challenges arise.
