Northwestern Lights: Regional Leadership in Environmental Markets

Here at the Ecosystem Marketplace, we are well into our second year of covering the twists, turns and straight-aways of payments for ecosystem services. As environmental markets continue to grow and diversify in the Pacific Northwest, we think it is a good time to highlight some of the regional intelligence we have amassed. In the following pages, we provide a cross section of the timely reporting, market analysis, personal perspectives, controversial debates, and glimpses of the future that make this field so exciting.

This collection of feature stories demonstrates the breadth and depth of issues we cover at the Ecosystem Marketplace, and, we hope, it will give you a sense of the practical approach we take to reporting on environmental markets.
