Integrated Conservation Planning and Strategic Environmental Assessment

We undertake assessments of the relative importance of coastal areas and estuaries for conservation planning, management decision making and freshwater allocation. We bring a rare multidisciplinary perspective to conservation planning that takes account of economic and social opportunities and constraints as well as ecological targets. The Anchor Environmental team recognise the importance of strategic planning to guide policy formulation and implementation, and have made a contribution to policy development initiatives in this region.
