April 19, 2012 - Session developed by Bruce Botelho (City and Borough of Juneau). Panel discussion with Bruce Botelho, Chris Maisch (Alaska Dept. of Natural Resources), Dave Secord (Tides Canada Foundation), Richard Harris (Sealaska), Martin Nie (U. of Montana), and George Hoberg (U. of British Columbia)

Session Abstract: Professor Martin Nie and Professor George Hoberg will explore the ideas, actors and institutions (and the external influences on these), underlying forest policy decisions that have guided the implementation of ecosystem management in the Great Bear Rainforest, the Tongass National Forest, and coastal temperate rainforests in Washington and Oregon. The presentations and the response panel whichfollows will grapple with these and similar issues:

• How does policy across this landscape differ and why?
• What are the implications and results of these differences?
• Is one system more responsive, resilient, or adaptive?
• What are we managing for and how? Who decides?
