Conservation planning & SEA

We are experienced in the field of conservation planning, and have undertaken studies of coastal, estuarine and terrestrial areas. We bring a rare multidisciplinary perspective to what we term integrated conservation planning that takes account of economic and social opportunities and constraints as well as ecological targets. We also undertake strategic environmental assessments (SEA), in order to make input into integrated conservation and development plans. These also include spatial dimensions, but have a broader focus and usually involve the evaluation of scenarios together with stakeholders.
