We work with decision makers to develop science and place-based tools that answer their questions. We publish findings in peer-reviewed journals (see our publications), deliver decision support tools, and build capacity through training.

Jade Maeva Delevaux, PhD
Kosta is a spatial ecologist and fisheries scientist with 15-years of experience conducting interdisciplinary research to support sustainable management of coastal and marine resources in the tropics. His expertise includes conservation planning and stakeholder engagement, ecological sampling design, monitoring methods, and spatial analysis. He has worked extensively with decision makers to develop science and place-based tools that answer their questions. He has led a variety of applied research projects on tourism impacts, marine protected areas, land-sea connectivity, and ecosystem services in Hawaii, Fiji, Vanuatu, Seychelles, United Arab Emirates, and the Caribbean.
Jade works as a senior Fellow with the marine team of the Natural Capital Project. Her role bridges the science teams and the training team. She works with local partners to help inform coastal and marine spatial planning, help co-design nature-based solutions, and inform the mainstreaming of natural capital assessment and accounting in partnership with muli-lateral banks in country pilots located in Asia-Pacific and Central America. She also plays a strong role in capacity development to enable partners to employ natural capital approaches and apply InVEST models in their local decision making context.
