Multiplier Effects of Tourism Spending in Peru’s National Parks

With support from the Andes Amazon Fund, CSF is conducting an analysis on multiplier effects of tourism spending in Peru’s national parks. Peru has created eleven national parks and numerous other protected areas in its Andes Amazon region covering approximately 18 million hectares. While efforts are currently under way to address existing funding gaps, the long term financial sustainability of Peru’s protected areas requires a substantial, long-term increase in allocation of public funds. Furthermore, Peru’s biological importance justifies expansion of the existing protected area system in the Andes Amazon, further increasing funding required.

Fishery Opportunity Analyses in Latin America

As part of a generous grant from the Walton Family Foundation, CSF is conducting fishery opportunity analyses in three Latin American countries with important fishery sectors: Peru, Chile and Mexico. These analyses are designed to help CSF identify the best ways and geographies in which to grow our integrated marine and fisheries strategy, which helps to improve conservation decisions by incorporating sound economics into marine and fisheries management. Until now, CSF’s Oceans and Fish program has been focused on the Indo-Pacific region, but with this timely support, we are beginning to lay the groundwork to expand our marine program in Latin America, where CSF has a long-standing terrestrial presence.

Choice Experiment Application and Presentation of Results to support the design of the Federal District Forest Compensation Law - Brazil

CSF participated in a meeting held on October 27th, 2016, at the Federal District Urban Development Agency (Terracap) in Brasília. The meeting’s goal was to contextualize and carry out the facilitation process and data collection with members of the Aliança Cerrado, to be used to support the design of the new Forest Compensation Law of the Federal District.
This meeting was conducted by Pedro Gasparinetti, CSF consultant, and opened by Raul do Valle, from the Environmental Department of the Federal District (SEMA-DF).

Definition of Ecological Equivalence levels for the Federal District Forest Compensation Law - Brazil

Conservation Strategy Fund (CSF-Brazil) worked together with the Environmental Department of the Federal District (SEMA-DF) to support the design of the new Forest Compensation Law of the Federal District, in Brazil. Nowadays, this law aims defines how much should be restored to compensate the vegetation suppression by, for example, real estate and urban infrastructure projects. The current law is criticized for two main reasons: (1) it imposes too high costs for entrepreneurs; and (2) it is environmentally inefficient.

From all of us at CSF: Thank you!
