Description: The USDA Forest Service is among the pioneers incorporating the Montreal Process criteria and indicators into its programs. Among its initial efforts is the adaptation of a criteria and indicators framework for its national strategic plan, which is the primary instrument for setting the course to achieve the Forest Service mission of sustaining the nation’s forests and grasslands for present and future generations. This presentation describes the steps the Forest Service has taken to adopt and implement a criteria and indicators-based strategic plan. It also describes the challenges of formulating a budget based on performance measures in the plan and then creating field unit and executive and manager-level accountability for results that foster sustainability.

Keywords: monitoring, assessment, sustainability, Western Hemisphere, sustainable management, ecosystem resources, strategic planning, sustainable forests
