Facilitation and Management of the South Central Action Area Group

Location: Washington


The South Central Action Area Group (SCAAG) is one of nine Local Integrating Organizations across Puget Sound charged with locally implementing regional conservation and restoration initiatives. The organization brings together local government, Tribes, nonprofits, businesses, and interest groups to coordinate pollution reduction and habitat protection and restoration efforts across the Seattle-Tacoma metropolitan area. Cascadia manages the complete life cycle of SCAAG projects, from facilitation and organization to implementation and performance monitoring. We serve as a liaison for stakeholders, identify funding opportunities for local projects, and ensure that meetings are constructive, efficient, and fair; we also help the group coordinate the implementation of its Action Agenda, track the progress and performance of local actions, and prepare public-facing documents and materials. Cascadia is currently working with SCAAG to update its five-year Ecosystem Recovery Plan and two-year Implementation Plan, including prioritizing and sequencing local actions to be undertaken in 2016.

I was very pleased with the experience we had recently working with Cascadia to develop our carbon inventory and finalize our sustainable action guide. It’s a very daunting task to begin the process of changing the way we do business and measure our success so to have the combination of expertise and patience that you brought to the effort really made it enjoyable. I look forward to continuing to work with Cascadia as BNBuilders moves farther and farther along in this process.
