Northern forests and communities face substantial economic, environmental and social changes. What will happen as the climate shifts, people move, markets slow or insects attack? As we face uncertainty, what can we do to ensure a future that integrates healthy ecosystems, vibrant culture and stable economies? The “Boreal Forest and Community Resilience Project” promotes community and ecosystem resilience in the face of uncertainty through partnership, research, visioning and planning by providing communities, resource managers and organizations with an opportunity to form partnerships, identify emerging challenges and explore approaches for dealing with change and complexity.
