In August of 2011, the Department of Natural Resources released The Path We Share, A Natural Resources Strategy for Nova Scotia 2011-2020. A companion document, From Strategy to Action, outlined 32 priority actions the Nova Scotia government committed to take within the strategy’s first two years. In August of 2013, a 24-Month Progress Report outlined the results of those 32 action items.
From Strategy to Action outlined only the first steps in the transformative change required by the Strategy. Since August of 2013, the Department of Natural Resources has focused much of its efforts on changing the status quo; on finding ways to make changes that will enhance programs and services. Staff members are moving beyond check marks for individual actions toward the substantive change needed to meet the Strategy’s overarching goals of collaborative leadership, sustainable resource development, research and knowledge sharing, and good governance.
To better share information on this work, the Department will periodically update this website with information on recent initiatives, decisions or progress and how they relate to the Strategy’s four overarching goals.
A full update report on progress relating to The Path We Share, A Natural Resources Strategy for Nova Scotia 2011-2020 is being planned for August 2016.
