If you don’t know where you are today, you won’t know if and how you have changed in the future. Documenting the current state of the community, lands and resources is an important first step in environmental assessment and planning. We work to document ‘baseline’ or the current state of land uses, community assets, and social and economic conditions, so that communities are empowered to participate effectively in environmental assessment and planning processes.


  • Socio-economic baseline studies

  • Community profiles

  • Indigenous community and cultural profiles


We recognize that empowerment in environmental assessment and planning involves building certain knowledge(s) and skills so that communities can engage more directly, and independently, in these processes. We therefore offer training opportunities in:

  • GoogleEarth Pro 

  • ArcGIS for k-12

  • Environmental Impact Assessment

  • Research Methods 

If you would like more information about any of these training areas please contact us.
