Redstone joined a consortium of funders and NGOs to design and carry out an innovative $100 million program to conserve important habitats while allowing opportunities for local economic development such as fisheries and cultural ecotourism. The ecosystem-based management at the heart of the undertaking tied ecological integrity to human wellbeing.

We produced a novel analytical tool for the project that allocated funding to assist with both development and conservation in the region based on participants’ territories, populations, conservation commitments, and overlapping land claims.

This tool was used as the basis for negotiations between the Canadian Government, the Government of British Columbia, the First Nations Governments, and conservation organizations associated with the consortium.
