Piloting restoration-related social and economic measures on national forests
MetadataShow full item record
Forest and watershed restoration on national forests and grasslands has ecological, social, and economic objectives. Forest Service performance measures have largely focused on outputs associated with land treatments, rather than ecological, social, and economic outcomes, in part because outputs are much more easily measured than outcomes. Over the past several years, the Forest Service has undertaken several initiatives to develop performance measures that are broader in scope and more outcome-oriented. This working paper summarizes key findings from an effort to pilot social and economic performance measures associated with watershed restoration.
