Second Sustainable Landscape Planning Workshop in Sintang

<

p style="text-align: justify;">Sintang Regency is located in the “Heart of Borneo”, an area of intact forest the size of England and Scotland combined, and home to endangered species including Bornean orangutans, sun bears (Helarctos malayanus), tarsius (Tarsius bancanus), various hornbills and eagles, and other vulnerable species. The more than one million indigenous people living in the forest rely on it for their livelihoods, and millions more depend on the environmental services it provides, like fresh water.

Lançamento de estudo sobre modelos de negócios de restauração florestal para o investimento privado na Amazônia brasileira

A Conservação Estratégica (CSF-Brasil) fez uma avaliação dos modelos mais promissores de negócios de restauração florestal para o investimento privado no sul do estado do Amazonas (AM), Brasil.

Fizemos uma avaliação econômica dos três modelos de restauração baseados em sistemas agroflorestais que identificamos durante nossa viagem a campo: (1) Guaraná; (2) Café, cacau e guaraná; (3) Café, cacau, guaraná, açaí e banana. Os resultados de viabilidade mostram que os investidores privados podem ser atraídos por esses negócios convincentes.
