The purpose of this document is to present potential frameworks for reporting the results from the 2011 National Wetland Condition Assessment (NWCA) conducted by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) and its partners. We, first, provide background on the goals, objectives, and design of the NWCA and its relationship to other USEPA National Aquatic Resource Surveys (NARS). Next, we explore how the results of the 2011 NWCA might effectively be presented in a baseline report on national wetland condition within two frameworks. One addresses reporting on ecological condition; the other, ecosystem services.
