Análises

A Conservação Estratégica apoia conservacionistas locais na utilização de ferramentas da economia que os permitam encontrar soluções inteligentes e eficientes para os problemas ambientais mais urgentes. Desde a sua criação, a CSF conduziu dezenas de estudos sobre ambientes florestais, fluviais e costeiros. A maior parte dos nossos projetos é focada nos Trópicos, pois estes apresentam níveis extraordinários de biodiversidade. Para maximizar a influência e a qualidade dos nossos estudos, nós envolvemos profissionais de renome e organizações conservacionistas em todos os projetos.

Customized Training and Mentored Policy Research on Integrated Landscape Policy & Economics

With support from the David and Lucile Packard Foundation, CSF is working on a project to promote integrated landscape approaches for sustainable forests and land use policy and management at the sub-national level in Central Kalimantan, Indonesia.

The specific objectives of the program areas follows:

Conservation Finance Curriculum Development

CSF has received a grant from Blue Solutions to support curriculum development on conservation finance. This will add to the current suite of Blue Solutions trainings that include marine spatial planning, climate change adaptation, and integrating ecosystem services into marine and coastal development.

Increasing the Sustainability of Mangrove Management

CSF is collaborating with NatureServe and Pronatura Veracruz on a project for the Inter-American Development Bank to create a replicable model for mangrove ecosystem management. This model will be built on engagement of local communities using ecological condition assessment, economic valuation, and development of alternative livelihoods. The project is focused on the Alvarado Lagoon System in Veracruz, Mexico, a RAMSAR-recognized wetland of global importance. CSF’s primary role in this project is leading the economics, with a focus on helping communities perceive and develop solutions to the market challenges they face in transitioning to sustainability.

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.

Capacity Building and Technical Support for Parques Nacionales Naturales de Colombia

Colombia is one of the most biodiverse countries in the world. The country's fifty-nine protected areas are managed by Parques Nacionales de Colombia (PNNC) who hope to use Payments for Environmental Services (PES) to stimulate conservation and restoration of ecosystems. With support from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, CSF provided capacity building and technical support to support PNNC in this endeavor.

Promovendo a conservação das florestas no Brasil: identificação de desafios e oportunidades do desenho e implementação das regulamentações estaduais do mercado de Cotas de Reservas Ambientais (CRAs)

Atualmente, a Conservação Estratégica (CSF) está conduzindo um estudo que visa subsidiar o desenho e implementação das regulamentações do mercado de Cotas de Reservas Ambientais (CRAs) pelos Estados brasileiros para promover a conservação de florestas de uma forma mais eficiente em termos econômicos e ambientais.

With support from the Good Energies Foundation, CSF is working to identify and implement a sustainable financing mechanism for environmental projects in Bolivia and for the community-based forest conservation program known as COMSERBO program (Programa de Incentivos por COnservación, Manejo Integral y SERvicios de BOsques, or Incentive Program for Forest Conservation, Integrated Management, and Services).

Scenario Planning in North Aceh

CSF Indonesia led a multi-stakeholder sustainable development planning process for the North Aceh Regency. This planning process included two workshops. The first was a Scenario Planning Workshop, which generated an optimum scenario for North Aceh in the year 2032. The second was the Development Planning Workshop, which translated and embedded the scenario, vision, and mission into actual development programs. Participant represented CSOs and government agencies, as well as local stakeholders.

Results of this process are expected to be adopted to become the technocratic draft of the medium-term development plan by the regency government.

Contribuindo para a tomada de decisão sobre usinas hidrelétricas (UHE) na região Amazônica brasileira: Estudo da viabilidade financeira e dos impactos potenciais da UHE Castanheira

A Conservação Estratégica (CSF-Brasil), em parceria com as organizações Instituto Centro de Vida (ICV), International Rivers e Operação Amazônia Nativa (OPAN), está fazendo um estudo detalhado sobre o projeto de construção da UHE Castanheira no rio Arinos, no Mato Grosso (MT), Brasil. Os três objetivos deste projeto são: (1) avaliar a viabilidade financeira do projeto; (2) contribuir para a análise dos impactos socioambientais associados à construção de hidrelétricas na região Amazônica; e (3) auxiliar os tomadores de decisão sobre este tipo de obra de infraestrutura através de uma análise custo-benefício da UHE.
