In Fall 2020 and Winter 2021, the North American Waterfowl Management Plan (NAWMP) Integration Steering Committee hosted a series of webinars. These are intended to share knowledge and experience within the waterfowl conservation community on how habitat conservation efforts can identify and address broad-based societal benefits (ecosystem services, natural values, green infrastructure, natural capital, ecological benefits, etc.). Presenters in the series address how they identified which benefits to consider, how they obtained and applied the related scientific information, how they employed an adaptive decision approach or framework, and how they communicated benefits to stakeholders.
