Ms. Doyle will work with the multidisciplinary, multi-sectoral Expert Panel to address the following assessment question, referred to the CCA by Natural Resources Canada: What is the state of knowledge and practice of integrated approaches to natural resource management in Canada?
Members of the panel include experts from different fields of natural resources development, traditional knowledge, public administration, geography, ecology and economics. Meet the panellists.
“I’m very pleased to accept the position of chair for this assessment and I’m eager to work with such a fantastic group of experts on this important question,” said Ms. Doyle. “I look forward to shedding new light on how the evidence can be best applied to enhance the management of natural resources in Canada and globally.”
In addition to her extensive professional experience in natural resource governance, Ms. Doyle brings a global perspective on IRM through her work at CIRDI. Strengthening integrated resource management is one of five areas of focus in CIRDI’s Strategic Plan and is actively addressed in CIRDI’s Peru Water project, which supports education and research for integrated water resource management.
