“Your vision of how to implement the science part of this program has been remarkable. We have all come a long way in the last 2 years.”
“The environment that ESSA provides empowers workshop participants to express their views and the ESSA team skillfully responds to a diversity of comments in drafting summary reports. Interactions are efficient and professional.”
“ESSA produced a technically thorough final report, and presented the findings to our Board of Forestry. Their thoughtful investigation and presentation helped build understanding and confidence with our Board and stakeholders, in both the recommendations and our implementation of them. It was a pleasure to work with them.”
“I have re-read the report and wanted to again let you know how valuable it will become as we move towards completion of the Final Report and the evaluation of findings of fact.”
“I am astounded at the quantity and quality of the outputs. In so far as quantifying the ecological and socio-economic impacts of climate change on fisheries at a scale that is useful for countries to make climate-resilient decisions – it is indeed the first time we have done this. We now have the basic tools and a standardized monitoring framework that will allow us to refine, repeat or upscale the analyses over time, and by this means, also to assess whether we are achieving the desired outcomes and how to adapt our strategies accordingly.”
“I’ve worked with ESSA several times and each time what impresses me is the innovation in their work. They bring fresh ideas, know-how, and the horsepower to make those ideas a reality in the work. They also strongly encourage clients to provide a clear focus on what their basic assumptions and underlying needs are, thereby ensuring everyone is on the same page moving forward. This makes the final product very relevant.”
“We are pleased to have worked with ESSA Technologies on a design of M&E (monitoring and evaluation) system for Ethiopia’s Climate Resilient Green Economy Strategy, contracted by the UN Development Program, as we draw an important lesson that is going to benefit us for years to come. The staff’s technical rigor, diverse experience and diligence enabled the production of a report that was appreciated by all stakeholders.”
“Like most ecological systems, ESSA’s success and longevity are multi-factorial, of course. But at its core, ESSA has always been about its people. The ESSA story is a powerful demonstration of how a group of like-minded individuals can channel their collective intellectual curiosity into a synergism of scientific creativity to find solutions to difficult problems, and how a team of principled scientists can create a nexus of professional integrity and objectivity in a world where these attributes are both increasingly needed and increasingly rare. And, of course, how such lofty deeds can be accomplished while still having a lot of fun and laughs along the way”
“I am pleased to announce this significant step towards better understanding Canada’s coastal ecosystems and the effects of regional marine vessel activity on the environment. We are happy to work with ESSA Technologies Ltd., who will help us identity ways that we can assess the effects of existing and future vessel movement on the environment.”
“You guys are the bomb. If there were a level beyond Richter Omega I suspect it would be eleven. I am a twelve. You have exceeded my expectations.”
“Even a book about magic needs the occasional fact. The hard working environmental scientists of ESSA Technologies have inspired me, time and again, with their expertise and passion for developing solutions to humanity’s climate change problems.”
“Thank you for the time, energy, and creative thinking you invested in the recent review of the Everglades Adaptive Management Integration Guide. Your suggestions will result in stronger guidance on how to apply adaptive management to help achieve Everglades restoration.”
“The ESSA team have given us a bedrock foundation for the long haul. We are deeply appreciative and indebted.”
“The team at ESSA brought a wide-ranging set of skills and perspectives to support the re-development of the Coastal First Nation’s Regional Monitoring System (plus they were such a fun bunch of people to work with!) Thank you all for your incredible commitment to this project.”
