Outcomes/Impact Unit Quantification
The Ecosystem Services Market Research Consortium (ESMRC) develops techniques that help fund cost-effective and scalable regenerative agriculture.
Much of ESMRC’s work centers around the development of accurate and cost-effective ways to measure changes in soil health as well as water quality and water quantity. Techniques focus on sequestering and reducing greenhouse emissions as well as reducing farm and ranch runoff.
ESMC is unique in emphasizing an integrated impact unit quantification approach that maximizes collaboration and promotes transparency.
ESMRC’s Working Groups are discovering new and ever more accurate techniques to measure the conservation farmers and ranchers perform every day.
Participants work closely with members and partners to develop data collection protocols for use across all of our activities. By joining together to collect, document, and share calibration data, ESMRC Working Groups and ESMC members improve the accuracy and effectiveness of these tools. Our work contributes to a broader deeper understanding of how conservation techniques result in long-term sustainability in agriculture and the broader environment.
