Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: Coproduction requires researchers and resource managers to work together to produce actionable science that meets the needs of resource managers and policy makers. The level of that partnership can vary. Some projects may require only limited, targeted interactions between resource managers and researchers to produce the results or tools that resource managers need. Other projects may be more exploratory, complex, or less well defined and require a greater level of input and engagement throughout the project. This information sheet provides a framework for guiding conversations about how both parties will work together on a project. It includes a table that defines the type of engagement that is likely to be required for projects with low, medium and high levels of coproduction.
