Summarize accomplishments from:
Regional Priority Approach Description
Approach - Develop a standardized habitat assessment methodology and decision framework that supports regulatory alignment and harmonization of plans, processes, voluntary measures, and actions among agencies and across all levels of government.
Desired Outcome - Localized habitat goals achieved that support the recovery and further protection of all treaty resources, meet multiple-benefit planning goals, and create efficiencies and cost savings for the public, governments, and their staff.
Policy Needs - N/A
Example Actions - Develop ways to align regulations across all levels of government in support of bundling and streamlining voluntary permit pathways. Develop a habitat assessment and decision tool for salmon that identifies critical habitat and priority actions to recover salmon.
Proposal Guidance - Describe how your project is applicable Sound-wide, or could be exported to other parts of the Sound.
Local Context - Local context provides additional specificity on how a Regional Priority approach should be implemented in each local area; examples include sequencing, partners to consider, and critical areas. Local context for this Regional Priority approach is available here.
