Abstract: Federal investments in ecosystem restoration restore injured natural resources and improve the health and resiliency of terrestrial, freshwater, and marine ecosystems. These investments also generate business activity and create jobs. The Economic Impacts of Ecosystem Restoration project aims to increase the availability of information on the costs and activities associated with ecosystem restoration and to gauge the economic effects of these investments to local economies. Researchers with the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and the DOI Office of Policy Analysis are conducting this information collection at the request of the Natural Resource Damage Assessment (NRDA) Restoration Program. The NRDA Restoration Program is weighing the pros and cons of collecting restoration cost data as part of contractor reporting requirements for restoration projects associated with NRDA cases. The collection described under this request is designed to refine potential expenditure questions prior to developing contractor reporting requirements. The project comprises a series of case studies that quantify the economic impacts of restoration projects. The case studies include examples of collaboratively funded and managed projects to restore a wide range of degraded, damaged, or destroyed ecosystems. Project methods include the collection of primary expenditure data and economic input/output modeling. Results from the first phase of case studies are available in a 2016 USGS report entitled, ‘‘Estimating the economic impacts of ecosystem restoration—methods and case studies.’’ This second phase of case studies aims to refine the survey methods and to develop and test a web-based data collection form that would enable broader collection of project expenditure data. Title of Collection: Economic Contribution of Federal Investments in Restoration of Degraded, Damaged, or Destroyed Ecosystems. OMB Control Number: 1028–0107. Form Number: None. VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:36 Jun 10, 2019 Jkt 247001 Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection. Respondents/Affected Public: Restoration project managers working on selected case study restoration projects; this includes project managers from state and local government, nonprofits, and the private sector. Total Estimated Number of Annual Respondents: We expect to do up to 10 case studies per year, and all of these case studies will have Federal project managers. Total Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 10. Estimated Completion Time per Response: We estimate it will take approximately 3.5 hours per person to complete the survey, including correspondence time. Total Estimated Number of Annual Burden Hours: 35 hours. Respondent’s Obligation: Voluntary. Frequency of Collection: One time. Total Estimated Annual Nonhour Burden Cost: There are no ‘‘non-hour cost’’ burdens associated with this collection of information. An agency may not conduct or sponsor and a person is not required to respond to a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number.
