Reflecting a systems approach, the Integrated Watershed Restoration Strategy (IWRS) aims through its development and implementation, to adopt an integrated approach to addressing threatened or deteriorated ecosystem features and functions. The IWRS sets out landscape scale priorities for conservation actions; however,decision-making must always factor both site-level and opportunistic considerations (e.g. landowner willingness, specific threats, cost efficiencies, etc).
CVC’s Sustainable Forest Management Plan (SFMP) provides direction for forest management for the next 20 years (2021- 2040), with a review and update scheduled for 2030. The overarching goal of the SFMP is to maintain and restore forest health, improve biodiversity and strengthen the resilience of forests in the watershed – on lands owned by CVC, municipal partners, and private landowners.
This manual on the Greenbelt-specific Environmental Benefit Index (EBI) is to measure changes in ecosystem services as a result of landowners undertaking specific wetland restoration activities.
The study reviews economic fundamentals of reverse auctions (RAs) and Environmental Benefit Indices (EBIs) used in the USA, Australia, and Canada. The study also recommends a framework for a Greenbelt-specific wetland restoration EBI that includes biological, hydrological, and social benefits.
