With generous support from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, CSF is working on a project to identify the relative riskiness of planned road projects in terms of economic, social and environmental costs in the Amazon basin, and to engage decision makers to ensure that this analysis is relevant, understood and to the greatest extent possible considered in decision-making processes.

Regional Symposium: The Value of Nature

The Regional Symposium: "The Value of Nature", took place in Quito, Ecuador, from the 27th of November to December 1, 2017. The event was held at the Hotel Quito, and included a combination of plenary sessions, training, and interactive sessions on the topic of quantification and valuation of ecosystem services for sustainable development.  Attendees were able to choose from a combination of sessions led by experts from the Natural Capital Project (NatCap) and Conservation Strategy Fund (CSF). For attendees working in coastal and marine contexts, the central themes included the assessment of the risks to habitat and marine protected areas.

From all of us at CSF: Thank you!

Opportunity cost assessment and mapping Tropical Andes

International climate change discussions have identified the use of economic incentives as an important means to reduce deforestation. Governments in the Amazon Andes have created or are in the process of creating incentive mechanisms to pursue this goal, frequently alongside other complementary development and conservation objectives.  In order to be most effective, one of the key pieces of information that these mechanisms need is the opportunity cost of conservation. Unfortunately, this data is remarkably scarce in the region.
