Land managers are helping steward and restore ecosystems every day. The challenge is communicating these benefits in terms other people can understand and invest in. Willamette Partnership has over a decade of experience helping communities quantify environmental benefits, connect those benefits to different forms of investment, and track how conservation programs make progress toward meeting their goals.
Our ecosystem accounting service area can help with:
- Development of transparent and credible methods for quantifying and tracking provision of ecosystem services;
- Design of market-based and incentive programs to improve conservation outcomes;
- Synthesis, translation, and application of science to address management and policy needs; and
- Effective, efficient, and integrative systems for reporting the conservation outcomes for regulatory or incentive programs.
