Scope of Services and Experience

NATURAL RESOURCE MANAGEMENT PLANNING

Scope of Services

The conservation of various natural resources requires an initial inventory of existing marine and land resources, as well as the trends and factors influencing the sustainability of various ecosystems and habitats.  The implementation of conservation projects and programs also requires a practical assessment of soil and geological characteristics, hydrologic conditions, biological trends, existing and potential land uses, the technical capacity of local resource managers, and available financial resources. PPC normally carries out natural resource management plans with the assistance of scientists who have specialized experience in marine or terrestrial biology, hydrology, physical oceanography or other areas of relevant expertise.  Spatial analysis is often applied to these efforts to correlate various ecological considerations.

Experience
