Research Interests:

The graduate students that make up the Sustainable Forest Management Laboratory, which he leads, are interested in all aspects of sustainable forest management, but particularly the application of the principles of sustainable forest management to real world situations. He has been looking at how internationally agreed criteria and indicators of sustainable forest management can be improved and what this means for forestry practices on the ground.

The design of suitable monitoring systems is an important part of forest management: a manager must be able to see whether a particular change in management is having the desired effect on the ground. To do this, an appropriate system of indicators and measurements is required. There is also a need to better understand what constitutes a “success”, since different people have different ideas about this. As a result, he and his team are looking at the success of co-management agreements for both forests and national parks.

Dr. Innes is working with a number of indigenous peoples looking at how they are implementing sustainable forest management. Our work in the Yukon involves an examination of how the impacts of climate change are affecting forest-dependent communities and how those communities are adapting to their changing environment. This ties in with our work in northeast British Columbia, where he has been looking at the cumulative impacts of development on aboriginal communities. Elsewhere in British Columbia, he is looking at what influences the capacity of First Nations to implement sustainable forestry and at some of the barriers influencing this.

Dr. Innes is closely involved with a number of international projects in China and elsewhere. Having worked in Britain and Switzerland in the past, he is interested in how management practices are changing in different countries in response to international issues such as the conservation of biodiversity and climate change. As a past member of the Sustainable Forestry Board, He is particularly interested in certification and how it is promoting sustainable forest management.
