A focus areas for the firm is strategic advice and capacity-building for organizations seeking to use water transactions to acquire water rights to support ecosystem health, chiefly in the United States Pacific Northwest. This work is expanding both nationally and internationally as interest in environmental flows increases.

We also provide economic advice on water and watershed issues, both in the US and internationally.

Our experience with conservation, economics, and finance gives us the ability to navigate the many tradeoffs and dilemmas around incentive-based environmental policy and resource management with precision. Across multiple policy areas and for diverse clients, Ecosystem Economics focuses on developing financial mechanisms, markets and institutions that can take us towards a sustainable future.
