Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: The federal government is committed to using science to inform decision making. Federal staff need usable science products that can help inform management decisions and actions across multiuse landscapes. Adopting a coproduction approach to conducting science is one mechanism that can help ensure that science requested by federal staff will better meet their needs. Coproduction can also help scientists and managers produce knowledge and tools that are relevant, timely, and more easily integrated into agency work processes. This document includes definitions, a summary of the roles and responsibilities of individuals involved coproduction of science, as well as the benefits and potential challenges of coproduction.
