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:

Developing an ecosystem-based, sustainable management plan for a key biodiversity region in the west of Belize, in collaboration with the Inter-American Development Bank, the Economic Development Council of the Government of Belize, the University of Belize, and local communities.

Worked to understand linkages between land and sea--specifically, how activities in coastal watersheds might impact the delivery of ecosystem services from marine systems. Partners: Stanford University, The Nature Conservancy.

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.

Project Category:

Project Category:

NatCap used 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
