2 Workshop purpose & context +Forum for exchange of ideas for PEM practitioners Issues, solutions Opportunities +Provincial PEM business case Technical feedback Organizational & support issues Implementation Framework & Plan +External perspectives on PEM program overall +Forum for exchange of ideas for PEM practitioners Issues, solutions Opportunities +Provincial PEM business case Technical feedback Organizational & support issues Implementation Framework & Plan +External perspectives on PEM program overall

3 “PEM-the-Province” proposition — the business case +Present business case has raised some cautious interest Business case can be broadened & strengthened for other SFM benefits +Need to determine nature of concerns +Need to undertake technical “due diligence” (this workshop as a start) +Present business case has raised some cautious interest Business case can be broadened & strengthened for other SFM benefits +Need to determine nature of concerns +Need to undertake technical “due diligence” (this workshop as a start)

6 PEM is now officially on the radar screen +Relatively new ‘methodology’ operationally +High on the inventory agenda Clients Investors PEM practitioners Researchers +Presently under the looking glass +Relatively new ‘methodology’ operationally +High on the inventory agenda Clients Investors PEM practitioners Researchers +Presently under the looking glass

7 High expectations building for PEM +For many — significant expectations for ecosystem-based inventory information at bargain basement prices! +Greater efficiencies and smarter approaches indeed hold promise +But, need to manage expectations with extreme care +History shows that oversold inventory systems come and go +For many — significant expectations for ecosystem-based inventory information at bargain basement prices! +Greater efficiencies and smarter approaches indeed hold promise +But, need to manage expectations with extreme care +History shows that oversold inventory systems come and go

8 +Ultimately PEM must show its value at the resources decision table +Like our management systems, PEM will be scrutinized closely for its — relevance quality value for investment +Ultimately PEM must show its value at the resources decision table +Like our management systems, PEM will be scrutinized closely for its — relevance quality value for investment

9 PEM not unique to BC +Predictive spatial and temporal ecological modeling techniques abound elsewhere too +A number warrant consideration with the BC circumstance +Some of these ideas will be advanced in this workshop as food for thought Additional focus on ecosystem-landscape- hydrological processes …address contemporary SFM questions regarding ecosystem-landscape function, integrity and conservation +Predictive spatial and temporal ecological modeling techniques abound elsewhere too +A number warrant consideration with the BC circumstance +Some of these ideas will be advanced in this workshop as food for thought Additional focus on ecosystem-landscape- hydrological processes …address contemporary SFM questions regarding ecosystem-landscape function, integrity and conservation

10 PEM challenges how we presently do things +We use inventories and classification systems in ways that were never originally intended +Raises strategic questions regarding rationalization of current inventory product portfolio & tool box +Topics that are of central interest to the FRIC, LUCO and LIICC +We use inventories and classification systems in ways that were never originally intended +Raises strategic questions regarding rationalization of current inventory product portfolio & tool box +Topics that are of central interest to the FRIC, LUCO and LIICC
