The proposed workshop will convene for a broad-based discussion of the state-of-the-science and the state-of-practice with respect to market-based mechanisms in Bay restoration. An ad hoc steering committee has been formed to begin planning for this workshop, and the members of the committee recommended a focus on factors contributing to both the supply and demand for environmental services across the Bay region. This is reflected in a proposed focus on:
Creating a framework to describe circumstances where specific market mechanisms are more (or less) effective.
Describing boundary conditions and circumstances contributing to the success (or failure) of specific mechanisms.
Understanding model programs with respect to this framework, boundary conditions, and circumstances.
Sharing practices regarding program evaluation and assessment.
