Summary

CBO is researching how conservation boundary organizations (such as our own), work to achieve actionable science. Boundary organizations connect science to policy or management by facilitating the flow of information among scientists, decision-makers and other stakeholders.

By addressing various aspects of the theory and practice of boundary organizations during seminars and workshops, CBO and its partners are creating a dialogue with a view to highlighting the opportunities and challenges inherent to working at the boundary of science, policy and practice.
