This report is one component in a series of roundtables, workshops, and working groups funded in part by the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation exploring opportunities and issues for ecosystem services markets. The paper draws on two workshops. The first, entitled “Building an Oregon Ecosystem Services Marketplace: Policy Focus Session,” was held in Portland on January 18, 2008. The ideas, suggestions and examples shared at the workshop provided the foundation for a draft of this document that was then discussed at a second workshop, held May 8, 2008, with state agency directors and staff.

  • This report derives from two policy work sessions, one in January 2008 and one in May 2008, which explored policy cornerstones and action strategies to bring an integrated ecosystem marketplace to fruition in Oregon. The report takes an initial look at ways in which current state policies and practices either promote or inhibit developing a robust ecosystem marketplace. With input from agency heads and staff, it identifies specific strategies agencies can employ to meet the objectives required to develop an integrated marketplace. In many cases, these strategies are already in some stage of development, trial or implementation in Oregon. The report highlights these and compiles examples from across the state to demonstrate the range of experimentation already underway with market incentive mechanisms.
