Projects

Working to 1) target and value investments in natural capital and watershed management 2) to reduce excess sediment to the Mangla Reservoir 3) build capacity for ongoing assessment, monitoring, and targeting. Collaborators:  World Bank, Pakistan Water and Power Development Authority, Forest Department, and Ministry of Agriculture.

Project Category:

Worked to prioritize conservation and restoration activities in Escambia and Pensacola Counties to achieve multiple watershed and coastal objectives, including reduction in erosion and flooding, nitrogen and phosphorous retention, nature-based recreation, and near-shore fisheries. Partners:  Stanford University, The Nature Conservancy.

Project Category:

Assessing urban ecosystem services and promote nature-based solutions in urban planning in China using InVEST tools. 1 of 5 Chinese pilot cities. Partners: Stanford University, Chinese Academy of Sciences.

Project Category:

Developed all of the original Marine InVEST tools to use nature's benefits to inform coastal plans for Barkley and Clayoquot Sounds. Collaborator:  West Coast Aquatic.

Working to integrate ecosystem service considerations into integrated spatial planning in Mondulkiri Province in Cambodia. Partners: Stanford University, WWF.

Working to 1) target and value investments in natural capital and watershed management to reduce excess sediment to the Kaligandaki A hydropower facility; and 2) build capacity for ongoing assessment, monitoring, and targeting. Collaborators: World Bank, the Nepal Electricity Authority, the Dept of Soil Conservation & Watershed Management.

Project Category:

Developed watershed management plans to conserve the ecosystems of coastal watersheds in the southern Gulf of California and the Gulf of Mexico in the face of climate change. Collaborators:: Mexican Fund for the Conservation of Nature, National Institute for Ecology and Climate Change, National Forestry Commission (CONAFOR), National Protected Areas Commission (CONANP), and Secretary of Environment and Natural Resources

Project Category:

Worked to understand and communicate (through coastalresilience.org) where coastal habitats provide protection from sea-level rise and storms in the Gulf of Mexico and along the US east coast. Partners: Stanford University,  The Nature Conservancy.

Using information about variation in ecosystem services and their diverse values to develop land management plans that best meet the diverse objectives of Kamehameha Schools, the largest private land-owner in Hawai'i.

Working to use ecosystem service information to support a land use planning process undertaken by the regional government. Partners: Stanford University, WWF.

Improving methods for targeting and optimizing water fund investments, while accounting for uncertainties and trade-offs. Partners: Stanford University, The Nature Conservancy.  Collaborators: Upper Tana-Nairobi Water Fund,  CGIAR.

Project Category:

Using NatCap tools for targeting conservation and restoration to maximize ecosystem services, calculating return on investment, and building capacity. Collaborators:  FUNDECOR and Agua Tica Water Fund

Project Category:

Integrating natural capital valuation into spatial plans guiding development and conservation on the island of Sumatra, Indonesia. Partners: Stanford University, WWF.

Working to (i) map and quantify risks to habitat and ecosystem services from various activities in the Northwest Atlantic; (ii) proactively incorporate visibility considerations into wind farms and other large infrastructure siting and development projects, and (iii) quantify the specific communities (people and ports) affected by changes in fishing patterns driven by climate and management. Collaborators: US Federal government, New England state and regional leaders.

Assessing ecosystem services provided by the Chamkhar river basin to downstream hydropower projects and other stakeholders to enable the development and implementation of Payments for Ecosystem Services. Partners: Stanford University, WWF Bhutan.
