Economic instruments for ecosystem services conservation in mangroves located in federal protected areas

In 2015, CSF started a project within the scope of GEF Mangroves Program, in collaboration with FUNBIO (Brazilian Fund for Biodiversity) regarding the management of mangroves ecosystem services.

Around 90% of mangrove ecosystems in Brazil are located in protected areas. However, there are important deficiencies in terms of financial sustainability and resource management in these areas that affect natural capital stocks and biodiversity.

Therefore, we seek to study how different economic instrument designs may influence ecosystem services provision in mangroves. In order to do that we will:

1) Identify and prioritize ecosystem services provided by mangroves;
2) Assess the main ecosystem services values provided by mangroves in Brazil;

Artisanal fisherman in Brazil

Mapping the Value Chain of Artisanal Fisheries of the Brazilian Amazon Coast

In the Amazon, artisanal fishing is an activity of paramount importance to the livelihood, culture and income of indigenous peoples and traditional communities. At present, there are several bottlenecks in the production, processing and commercialization of products that hinder the structure and development of artisanal fisheries value chains.

In July 2015, CSF begun mapping value chains of fisheries held by traditional communities in the Brazilian Amazon: production chains of shrimp fisheries in the Brazilian states of Amapá, Pará and Maranhão and production chains of crab fisheries in the state of Pará.
