Science Education and Outreach Roadmap for Natural Resources

The Association of Public and Land-grant Universities, Board on Natural Resources and Board on Oceans, Atmosphere, and Climate, recently released a new report entitled, Science, Education and Outreach Roadmap for Natural Resources.

The report takes a holistic approach to identifying research priorities for natural resources, looking collectively at the many sub-disciplines including atmospheric, coastal, fisheries, forests, marine, rangelands, water, wildlife and others. To do so, the Roadmap examines six “Grand Challenges” in natural resources, detailing for each the background, current gaps in science, education, and outreach, research priorities, and expected outcomes. The “Grand Challenge” areas studied include sustainability, water, climate change, agriculture, energy, and education.
