Abstract: Ecosystem restoration projects in a given region often have similar drivers, stressors, state conditions, and ecosystem services. Moreover, objectives and accompanying metrics may be similar enough to encourage regional model development. Regional approaches to environmental benefits analysis offer opportunities to streamline project evaluation by developing consistent understanding, metrics, and models. This technical note proposes a framework for developing regionally applicable environmental benefits models. The proposed framework is demonstrated for streams in the Appalachian Piedmont. This approach could serve as a basis for developing consistent restoration outputs that can be combined and compared at regional scales.
