Projects

Working to provide analysis of Payment for Ecosystem Services (PES) programs across China, such as the Sloping Land Conversion Program (SLCP). This work is providing feedback to the Chinese government that will be used to calculate future subsidy payments to millions of rural families. Partners: Stanford University, Chinese National Academy of Sciences.  Collaborator:  Xian Jiatong University.

Project Category:

Exploring whether forest restoration benefits have the potential to significantly impact water management objectives when considering the complex realities of water management infrastructure and institutions. Partners: Stanford University, The Nature Conservancy.  Collaborators:  Stanford's Water in the West, Placer County Water Agency, Blue Forest Conservation

Project Category:

Evaluated InVEST's pollinator model in an urban area and used it to assess pollinator habitat under scenarios of change in turf grass management.

Developed tools and approaches to map and value ecosystem services in diverse ecosystems and military contexts of DoD installations.Collaborator: US Department of Defense.

Assessing the impacts of coal mine expansion on drinking water quality regulation services and evaluate the potential to mitigate impacts to local communities through conservation and restoration. Partners:  Stanford University, The Nature Conservancy.

Targeting conservation and restoration to maximize ecosystem services under climate change conditions, monitoring and evaluating the real benefits of these programs, and calculating return on investment. Collaborator:  Agua por la Vida water fund.

Project Category:

Working to use climate scenarios and ecosystem service modeling to identify and implement adaptation strategies in marine protected area and coastal zone management. Partners:  Stanford University, WWF-US, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, and Belize.

Informing how changing agricultural land use driven by adaptation to water scarcity can also be an opportunity to improve habitat and environmental outcomes, while mitigating the impact to the agricultural economy. Partners: The Nature Conservancy, Stanford University.

Improving the understanding of how the development of infrastructure and opportunities for tourists will change visitation to Jeju Island by Korean and international tourists.

Developed Mapping Ecosystem Services to Human well-being (MESH), a tool for calculating and mapping ecosystem services under different landscape management scenarios.

Developed tools and approaches to map and value ecosystem services in diverse ecosystems and military contexts of DoD installations. Collaborator:  US Department of Defense.

Assessing the potential for the Pucallpa-Cruzeiro do Sul road to be developed with no net loss of natural capital and for mitigation measures to secure ecosystem services for local communities in a socially equitable way. Partners: Stanford University, The Nature Conservancy.
