Forest Renewal BC Biodiversity Decision Framework

Date: 2004

EcoPlan worked with the Nature Trust of BC, Forest Renewal BC and a special project Advisory Board to develop a decision framework for identifying high priority, biodiverse land parcels for acquisition. EcoPlan led the development of a defensible and effective decision support framework for making property acquisition decisions. Using decision analysis techniques, the approach brought together scientists, policy analysts and interest groups to establish a scientifically rigorous and cost-effective decision support tool. This project was noted for its creative approach to group decision making, improving the way public funds are being spent.
