Last month, we held a series of meetings on the proposed financial mechanism for water conservation in The Pilón Lajas Biosphere Reserve & Communal Lands in Bolivia. On July 9th, we met with indigenous communities, and on July 10th with other stakeholders from the area around the reserve. Both meetings were coordinated with the Regional Council Tsimane Mosetén (CRTM) and the Bolivian National Protected Areas Service (SERNAP).

The Pilón Lajas Biosphere Reserve & Communal Lands lies on the eastern slopes of the Andes in northwestern Bolivia. This reserve connects 4 protected areas in Bolivia and Peru, protects safeguards the headwaters of the Alto Beni River, serves to regulate the local water cycle, and is also a hotspot of endemic biodiversity.

Incentivizing Best Practices in Soybean Production in the Brazilian Cerrado

CSF-Brazil is working to promote sustainable soybean expansion in the MATOPIBA region of the Brazilian Cerrado. In partnership with Instituto de Pesquisa Ambiental da Amazônia (IPAM - Amazon Environmental Research Institute), we are conducting a modeling study to better understand decision making around soybean production in MATOPIBA and assess various incentive and management strategies.

Specifically, our study will identify the factors that affect farmers’ production choices in 10 priority municipalities in Tocantins and Bahia. We will use choice modeling to assess the impact of incentive and management strategies on production choices and deforestation decisions according to producer preference patterns.
