International Symposium on Society and Resource Management (ISSRM)

International Symposium for Society & Resource Management (ISSRM)

Our annual meeting (the ISSRM) occurs every year in June. ISSRM is a venue for presenting cutting-edge research and engaging in productive discussions focused on the sustainable management of natural and cultural resources.

Since its inception in 1986, the ISSRM conference has always had a broad focus that encompasses a wide variety of international resource management issues, environmental justice, collaborative stakeholder processes, and the social impacts of natural resource management.
