Funding Guide for Protected Area Management and Implementation at the Municipal-level in Brazil

CSF-Brazil is developing a guide on fundraising and funding strategies for the management and implementation of municipal level protected areas in Brazil.

Protected areas play a crucial role in safeguarding ecosystems and wildlife, and reducing habitat fragmentation. At a local level, protected areas provide essential services like fresh drinking water, protection against natural disasters, and leisure spaces. However, governments often struggle to secure enough funding to establish and manage these areas.

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.
