BACKGROUND
EPA's Office of Research and Development (ORD) has requested that the SAB review the Agency's proposed Research Program Strategy and Multi-year Plan. The proposed research strategy is focused on developing an understanding of the ways in which management choices affect the type, quality, and magnitude of the goods and services received from ecosystems. ORD has requested that the SAB review the proposed approach and components of the research strategy and multiyear plan and to comment on emerging research issues related to ecosystem services.
