About Ecosystem Services Planning

The Westcountry Rivers Trust is at the forefront of reshaping how catchments and rivers are managed in both rural and urban landscapes. This unique knowledge and experience, developed over the last decade, has helped shape policy, contributed to state of the art research and through working with stakeholders delivered real environmental, economic and social benefits.
Ecosystem Services Planning (ESP) was established in response to an increasing demand for practical advice and support across all aspects of catchment management in both rural and urban landscapes. What sets ESP apart is our technical, analytical and strategic understanding is complemented by the practical experience of delivering integrated and tailored management interventions on-the-ground.
This experience in working from policy through to delivery, together with our ethos-driven rather than profit-driven approach, makes us a pragmatic and ethical choice.
