OES-Environmental has developed Good Management Practices for the collection of social and economic data in order to provide greater standardization in baseline and development/operational data requested to support permitting/consenting MRE projects and to increase understanding of the social and economic benefits and effects of MRE developments. By increasing standardization and incorporating agreements among governments and developers, consistency in data collection can increase and allow for comparisons of data across projects, communities, and technologies. The Good Management Practices described in this report should be used to help reach these goals.
