2 February 17, 2002 SRM Sustainable Rangelands Roundtable A group of stakeholders involved in meetings to identify a set of criteria and indicators (C&I) for measurement of rangeland sustainability. The C&I describe individual elements to assess to determine trends in resource conditions, management, economic benefits, and social values derived from rangeland.

10 February 17, 2002 SRM SRR Vision for Rangelands We envision a future in which rangelands in the U.S. provide a desired mix of economic, ecological and social benefits to current and future generations.

11 February 17, 2002 SRM Vision for the SRR Process We envision a future where we have widely accepted criteria and indicators for monitoring and assessing the economic, social and ecological sustainability of rangelands.

12 February 17, 2002 SRM SRR Mission The Roundtable will identify indicators of sustainability based on social, economic, and ecological factors, to provide a framework for national assessments of rangelands and rangeland use.

13 February 17, 2002 SRM SRR Guiding Principles 1. Collectively, indicators should guide monitoring efforts to measure rangeland sustainability in the U.S. at the national scale. Indicators should guide monitoring efforts at multiple scales.

14 February 17, 2002 SRM SRR Guiding Principles 2. Ensure that the indicators employ the appropriate temporal and spatial scales for assessing the criteria. 3. Collectively, C&I will address social, ecological, and economic aspects of sustainability.

15 February 17, 2002 SRM SRR Guiding Principles 4. Use a C&I framework as a common language and operational framework for defining and assessing sustainability. Begin by considering C&I of RSF.

16 February 17, 2002 SRM SRR Guiding Principles 5. Review and consider other indicator initiatives. 6. Numerous political questions related to rangelands. We will focus on vision-mission agreed to by SRR.

17 February 17, 2002 SRM SRR Guiding Principles 7. Process will feature outreach to stakeholders, open dialogue, and respect for differing opinions. 8. The SRR will be supportive of and compatible with improved on-the- ground management of rangelands.
