A lot of effort goes into designing an environmental market or incentive program. Sometimes it’s easy to forget that someone needs to manage, operate, and adapt a program once the design stage is complete. Willamette Partnership manages effective market and incentive programs and helps build the capacity of local stakeholders to fill program management roles.

Our operational support service area can help environmental market or incentive programs:

  • Design the sustainable business model, standard operating procedures, and governance structure for transparent and credible program administration;
  • Provide training and accreditation for managers and verifiers of environmental market and incentive programs;
  • Provide oversight and audit services for program management, verification, and tracking and accounting systems; and
  • Develop and support systems for program evaluation and adaptive management.
