SRGII’s resource management services provide comprehensive studies, assessments, plans, and implementation based on an ecosystem approach. This approach seeks to sustain or restore ecological systems and their functions and values. It is goal-driven, and is based on a collaboratively developed vision of desired future conditions that integrates ecological, economic, and social factors.
