Sustainable use of our land, water and plant resources is increasingly recognized as a key societal goal in the 21st Century. Management of these resources requires a combination of applied science and management skills with an understanding of the broad societal context. Renewable Resource Management provides essential skills in resource management coupled with a broader understanding of the role of management in society. The Resource Economics and Policy field of study involves the development of policies directly relevant to the management of bioresources.
