Library of Puget Sound Implementation Strategy products prepared by PSI


Implementation Strategies are a planning tool designed to provide priorities for the Action Agenda for Puget Sound, guide funding decisions, and serve as a road map for aligning Puget Sound recovery opportunities across agencies and programs. Implementation Strategies are produced using a process created by the Puget Sound Partnership. As part of this process, PSI researchers write two technical appendices that provide program and scientific information relevant to the strategies. PSI staff also conduct analyses relating to critical uncertainties hampering the implementation and/or development of Implementation Strategies. More information about Implementation Strategies, and links to Implementation Strategy products prepared by our partners, is provided in this Salish Sea Currents article, on this Strategic Initiatives for Puget Sound webpage, and on this Encyclopedia of Puget Sound webpage.

Base Program Analysis appendices assess ongoing programs with potential to help regional partners operationalize Implementation Strategies. They are developed consistent with National Estuary Program guidance for base program analysis (EPA 1993). Findings derived from recovery grant synthesis reports are a major data source for these evaluations.

State of Knowledge appendices provide a technical and scientific foundation for Implementation Strategies. These reports include a compilation of research gaps and monitoring needs identified during the Implementation Strategy development process.

Critical Analyses and NEP Synthesis Reports advance integration of technical and scientific information into development and operationalization of Implementation Strategies.

Additional analysis and modeling products prepared to support development and adaptive management of the Implementation Strategy program include:
