Scenario Planning of West Papua as a Conservation Province

Through support from DFID/UKCUU, CSF Indonesia led a scenario planning process of West Papua in relation to West Papua having recently been established as a Conservation Province (Provinsi Konservasi). The purpose of scenario planning was twofold. First was to develop a comprehensive understanding of what the future may hold for the sustainability of development in West Papua. Second was to establish a well-rooted vision that the stakeholders of West Papua will choose as the vision for the future, based on the shared knowledge of key driving forces, the interplay among these forces and actors, and the directions the interactions may result on.

With support from the Andes Amazon Fund, CSF conducted 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 conducted fishery opportunity analyses in three Latin American countries with important fishery sectors: Peru, Chile and Mexico. These analyses were 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 began to lay the groundwork to expand our marine program in Latin America, where CSF has a long-standing terrestrial presence.
