IntroductionResource Analysis Guide for
Sustainable Resource Management Planning
The Resource Analysis Guide is one of a series of
guidelines and supporting materials for Sustainable Resource
Management Planning (SRMP). Other guides available on MSRM’s website
include: First Nations Consultation Guidelines; Writing Resource
Objectives and Strategies: A Guide to Preparing Effective Resource
Management Plans; and a soon to be released document on standards
for SRMP. These materials will be supported by a web-based training
program that should be available before the end of January 2005.
The ever-changing nature of resource analysis dictates
a flexible approach to the topic. The Resource Analysis Guide will
be updated and improved as necessary. There are two sections in
Chapter 4 that remain under development in consultation with the
Ministry of Energy and Mines – they are sections on Mineral
Resources, and Oil and Gas. It is anticipated that these will be
completed in the next few months and added to the MSRM website at
The Resource Analysis Guide is a unique work that
describes in detail the workings of analysis in land use planning.
While meant for a technical and professional audience, it will also
provide managers and the public with a comprehensive look at how
information is obtained and used in planning. In that way, the guide
will make planning more accountable and transparent for such things
as project budgeting – of interest to the manager; and when
reviewing the final contents of the plan – of obvious interest to
the public. While developed for SRM planning, much of the guide is
also applicable to land and resource management planning and other
forms of strategic land use planning.
