Abstract

The importance of the environment and natural resource development for the province of Newfoundland and Labrador is hard to overstate, and the works that the Harris Centre has supported over the past ten years reflect this far reaching imporantance. And while the works Centre supports on the environment and natural resources has predominantly focused on Newfoundland and Labradorian, the high-level purpose, scope and impact of research done in Newfoundland and Labrador, is not limited to the province. For example, if there is a study of the impact of wind generated energy in Newfoundland and Labrador, the findings likely will have been focused on provincial policy development, but they could also have an impact nationally and internationally. On top of this, the environment and natural resources have a broad range of social, economic and environmental impacts that mean these sectors have far reaching implications for many facets of society. This first part of the report provides an overview of what is meant by the environment and natural resources, as well as engaged scholarship and how these fit with the role of the Harris Center in supporting research and framing policy debates around these issues in the province. The second part of this report focuses on lessons learned through research and events related to particular sectors that were supported by the Harris Centre. The report concludes with recommendations for how the Harris Centre might be better able to respond to stakeholder concerns in the works they support on the environment and natural resources
