Webinar: Improving your impact: Guidelines for doing science that influences policy and management

Presented by: Jon Fisher of The Pew Charitable Trusts

Date/Time: Tuesday, December 3, 1 pm US EST/10 am PST/6 pm UTC

Description: Scientists devote substantial time and resources to research to help solve environmental problems. And managers and policy makers must decide which actions will lead to desired environmental outcomes, based on the best-available evidence. Yet decision-makers frequently do not use much of this evidence. They may be unaware of it, lack access to it, not understand it, or view it as irrelevant. As a result, research intended to be applied often remains unused. In this webinar we outline a set of practical steps to improve the impact of science on decision making. These steps were developed from a review of the scientific literature on this topic and the input and experiences of numerous professionals in the field. The steps can be challenging to implement but should translate into science being used to inform environmental and conservation decisions more frequently. We will leave time for and welcome discussion and feedback from webinar participants.
