  • Silva Forest Foundation - Ecosystem-Based Conservation Planning (EBCP)
    EBCPs cover ecological time frames of hundreds of years and beyond plans that generations of people live through and change as our understanding of ecosystems improves Human cultures and their economies depend on intact natural ecosystems and their biological diversity in other words on natural capital Planning human activities that protect maintain and where necessary restore ecosystem integrity and biodiversity is the basis for developing enduring sustainable human economies and cultures Such activities are ecologically responsible because they ensure that ecosystem components and processes continue to support the full range of life Ecosystem based conservation planning is a system that may be effectively applied in unmodified to highly modified landscapes and may be used for a wide range of purposes from conservation area design to resource development settlement design and urban planning SFF has developed its approach to ecosystem based conservation planning over 25 years of working with rural and First Nations communities We owe a debt of thanks to many Elders and to other wise people who have generously assisted us in developing the philosophy principles and practice of EBCP EBCP focuses first on what to protect or what to leave and then on what to use or what to take Ecosystem based conservation planning does not start with a target for production be it cubic meters of timber person days of recreation or tons of salmon but instead seeks to understand the ecology of an area and then to define how various human activities and economies can fit within the ecological limits of the ecosystem EBCPs provide for protection of ecosystem functioning and balanced human and non human use of ecosystems ecological sustainability Ecosystem based conservation planning is about applying a different way of thinking a different value system to our relationship with the ecosystems that sustain us
