This project addresses Sustainable Forest Management (SFM) indicators, targets, and monitoring systems, specifically Topic 3.3b 'Identifying patterns of values and perceptions of various stakeholder/public groups about the relative importance of social, economic, and ecological factors' and Topic 3.3c 'Methods for aggregating social and economic data for use in land-use planning processes'. This project will create criteria and indicator tools that will aid in selecting indicators that represent the ecological, economic and social aspects of SFM in a viable and adaptive monitoring program. Particular emphasis will be placed on social and economic indicators, as these continue to be the weakest area in criteria and indicator systems. The project will involve widespread consultation (through online technology) and the research question 'How do the values and priorities of various stakeholders, public groups, and First Nations affect the viability of the monitoring schemes they aim to create?'
