Protected Areas

Protected areas are the cornerstones of conservation; they are the places where the full functioning of ecological processes is allowed to occur, with benefits that spill out into the surrounding seascapes, landscapes and communities. But protected areas are under constant pressure to demonstrate their economic value and have thus suffered reductions in area and levels of protection. Conservation can be accomplished by showing the affordability and substantial benefits of protected areas. CSF’s Protected Areas program provides training for park managers, advocates and inhabitants, as well as economic analyses including revenue strategies, financing plans, economic valuation, and economic impact analyses to support the effective design and use of parks and reserves. CSF envisions a world where policy-makers understand the value of protecting the planet’s most biodiverse marine and terrestrial ecosystems, a world in which protected areas are well-funded, well-managed, used by the public, and expanding.

Cost-Benefit Analysis for the proposed Nazca Ridge Marine Protected Area, Peru

In partnership with Oceana, CSF is conducting a cost-benefit analysis (CBA) for the creation of the proposed Nazca Ridge Marine Protected Area (NRMPA) located off the coast of central Peru. The CBA will estimate the benefits from the creation of the proposed MPA and compare these with costs associated with managing and others resulting from the establishment of the MPA. Roughly 100 kilometers offshore, NRMPA has the potential to be an important icon for marine conservation in Peru and globally while also protecting a source of marine wildlife and resources from future overfishing and pollution threats.
