Plain Language Summary

Cumulative effects to environmental, cultural, social and economic values are complex and difficult to address. It is challenging for any one project to respond to them correctly. This project aims to rectify the issue by creating a nimble, flexible and reusable approach that can be adapted, simplified or made more complex. Through the development of an integrated open-platform system for management, the project team will evaluate cumulative effects on indicators and examine trade-offs among land management options in the western boreal forest. The end-goal of the project is to improve the environmental performance of forestry, mining and oil and gas sectors by creating and mobilizing the knowledge, tools and techniques needed to address cumulative effects. This will minimize any unintentional negative environmental impacts and enable science-based decision making.
