Visualizing the Connections Between Environmental Organizations

  • by

The Stewardship Mapping and Assessment Project (Stew-MAP) was conducted in the Southeast New England Program (SNEP) region, as a part of the larger stormwater and habitat restoration efforts of the Southeast New England Program Network. The purpose of the StewMap project was to better understand the organizations dynamics of  environmental stewardship organizations in the SNEP region using the Stew-MAP methodology.

Since the start of the project in 2019, the SNEP Network has developed useful tools and resources to better understand the environmental stewardship networks in the region. The SNEP Network developed visualization tools to illustrate various networks among environmental stewardship organizations within the region. The Network also launched the SNEP StewMAP Dashboard to help communities and organizations discover new partners, build new or enhance existing collaborations, and examine regional strengths and gaps in a given area or topic. Additionally, in 2021, the team published a paper on the self-reported effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on stewardship organizations.

The SNEP Network is administered through EPA’s partnership with the New England Environmental Finance Center, a non-profit technical assistance provider for EPA Region 1.
