Cascadia Ecosystem Services Partnership (CaESP)

The Cascadia region is a hotbed of activity for innovative approaches to preserving and expanding the natural infrastructure and the multiple ecosystem services it provides.

This increase in activity has also given rise to a need for better coordination, communication, and integration of efforts.  With this in mind, the Cascadia Ecosystem Services Partnership (CaESP) was created.

CaESP is a collaborative effort to increase the use and usefulness of ecosystem service approaches for advancing the preservation and growth of natural infrastructure in the region.  This partnership is convened by Portland State University and advised by an executive committee of ecosystem service practitioners and researchers from the region.  The executive committee is convened quarterly to foster communication across leaders, discuss emergent opportunities, and identify areas for tighter collaboration.

Members of the CaESP Executive Committee include representatives from the following organizations: 





Current CaESP activities fall into three categories: Asessing Ecosystem Services; Human Health and Nature; and Communications
