How to Use an Open Source Platform to Manage Multiple Cross-Agency Conservation Projects: Introduction to ProjectFirma
Matt Deniston
Founder & Managing Partner

This tool would be most useful to larger land management organizations, both public and private, who are managing multiple projects across multiple partner organizations.

The EIP Project Tracker website launched in 2014, designed for legislators seeking to learn about Environmental Improvement Program (EIP) projects. The platform has gone one to win awards, and has proved invaluable in improving data coordination, increasing transparency, and showcasing progress towards attaining compliance with environmental threshold standards.

In 2016, Tahoe Regional Planning Agency (TRPA) and Sitka Technology Group granted an open-source license for the platform, marketed as ProjectFirma™, so other natural areas organizations can leverage the system and prior investment to enhance transparency, reporting, and analysis of their own cross-agency programs. Since issuing the open-source license, 19 California resource conservation districts, a coalition of Oregon watershed councils in Oregon, a water fund in Colorado’s Front Range, and the Idaho Soil and Water Conservation Commission have all joined the community.

Attendees of this webinar will:
Receive an overview of the ProjectFirma™ platform.
Gain behind-the-scenes information about what it took to launch this online resource.
Learn how California Regional Conservation Districts (RCDs) and others are leveraging significant Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and TRPA investment to benefit their multi-agency programs.
Experience a live demo of the online platform.
Understand how the open-source license can benefit your organization.
