    BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS — Boston University is (BU) will develop a new modeling platform to visualize the dynamics of ecosystem service provisioning and trade-offs in the Lower Mekong basin. The purpose is to encourage policy and resource management decisions that account for ecosystem services, particularly in Cambodia, during a critical time of fisheries management reform and hydropower development. The outputs of the model will be translated into a practical, accessible and easily employed format, accomplished through the engagement of end-users, in this case policymakers and resource managers.

The MacArthur Foundation awarded Boston University Department of Biology $500,000 between 2003 and 2014.
