Saving and relocating of a urban ecology

Normally when a complex is planned to construct a multistory housing apartment in a compact city like Dhaka, the rich ecology there are left unattended and unwatered for the long period between the agreement  signing (ecology owner & construction company) and authority approval obtaining- normally 12 to 18 months.

Most of the plants die in the mean time. Slum dwellers collect some for fuel wood. The left over are bulldogged and thrown away by the company while start construction.

Green Real Estate Pro Forma Investment Modeling Tool

The Economics of Change: Catalyzing the Investment Shift Toward a Restorative Built Environment provides effective alternatives to the current financial model and policy framework that drive investment decisions in real estate.

An Application for the Use of Stakeholder Perspectives about the Importance of Ecosystem Services

With the latitudes involved in protected area management, managers necessarily face tradeoffs as to which management practices to implement, and how those management practices affect protected area ecosystem services. Understanding the relative importance of protected area ecosystem services to stakeholders can help managers make decisions which maximize the value of the protected area to society.

Ecosystem Services, Land Use and Natural Infrastructure

A group for discussing how to address ecosystem services in local land use and infrastructure plans.

The purpose of this group is to investigate the challenges and opportunities associated with conserving ecosystem services within the context of Oregon's land use and infrastructure planning. Initially, information will be collected and compiled on this site, based on interviews with planners, local officials, and other experts.  Listening sessions will be held in several rural communities, to enhance understanding of unique circumstances and potential opportunities.

Biodiversity Conservation

Group to discuss biodiversity protection by encouraging increased conservation efforts on private lands through ecosystem services programs & markets.

This group was created to stimulate further conversation on how fish, wildlife and habitat can be protected more effectively on private lands.  The initial focus has been on application of the federal Endangered Species Act to stimulate demand for private conservation banks that provide habitat for listed or candidate species.
