Environmental Benefits Assessment (EBA) Research Program : [1] Community home page

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is committed to spending the nation's tax dollars wisely by investing in ecosystem restoration projects that provide the greatest benefits for the investment, and focus upon our most significant natural resources. The Environmental Benefits Analysis (EBA) program supports this commitment by developing improved benefit/output evaluation techniques, models and tools with emphasis on scientifically based and peer-recognized metrics for the analysis of ecosystem restoration projects. The EBA Research Program will seek to develop a framework for the consistent evaluation of environmental benefits across program lines, geophysical regions, and ecosystem types. The framework should be sufficiently flexible to accommodate later advancements in science and predictive capability. As ecological assessment capabilities improve over time, there will be less uncertainty in projected benefits and less reliance upon professional judgment.
