ELI and The Nature Conservancy’s Watershed Approach Handbook: Improving Outcomes and Increasing Benefits Associated with Wetland and Stream Restoration and Protection Projects

Presenters:

Rebecca Kihslinger – Science and Policy Analyst, Environmental Law Institute

Nicholas Miller, Science Director, The Nature Conservancy in Wisconsin

Jessica Wilkinson,  - Senior Policy Advisor, Mitigation/U.S. Government Relations, The Nature Conservancy

The presenters will introduce The Environmental Law Institute and The Nature Conservancy’s new Watershed Approach Handbook: Improving Outcomes and Increasing Benefits Associated with Wetland, which was just released (September 2014).  The Watershed Approach Handbook is intended to advance the use of a “watershed approach” in the selection, design, and siting of wetland and stream restoration and protection projects. This approach facilitates the consideration of additional goals, such as improved water quality, increased flood mitigation, improved quality and quantity of habitat, and increases in other services and benefits that result from ecologically successful and sustainable restoration and protection projects. 

Among other benefits, using a watershed approach a) allows decisions to be made in the context of a science-based analysis of watershed needs, b) increases the likelihood that projects located using this approach will achieve desired ecological outcomes and c) offers a concrete mechanism for considering various existing agency plans and goals and making them relevant to wetland and stream restoration projects.  The approach also provides a context within which restoration and protection projects can be evaluated and selected - based on their ability to meet human needs, offset new or previous impacts, and help achieve desired future conditions.
