Report: Addressing the Environmental Impacts of Large Infrastructure Projects at the Department of the Interior: Making “Mitigation” Matter

Abstract

The Interior Department has been developing landscape-level management and planning tools to assist in identifying areas for siting major conventional and renewable energy projects, and other infrastructure projects on public lands. The Interior Department is beginning to use the same type of landscape-level reviews that assist in siting projects, or that underlie management plans, to match up project-related mitigation obligations with landscape-level conservation priorities in a region. This approach, particularly if coordinated with similar approaches by other agencies, holds

the promise of regularizing, leveraging, and greatly improving the effectiveness of project-related mitigation investments.
