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.

Feasibility Analysis for Conservation Agreements in Pilón Lajas Biosphere Reserve and Communal Lands Watersheds

CSF is evaluating the feasibility of conservation agreements to guarantee the protection of the Pilón Lajas Biosphere Reserve and Communal Lands watersheds in Bolivia. Through consultation workshops with various stakeholders, we will consider different financial mechanisms and make recommendations on the best model to be implemented in Pilón Lajas. If we find that conservation agreements are feasible in this area, we will seek to work on the final design and implementation.

Background

Optimizando el Sistema de Cobros para Áreas Protegidas en Bolivia

CSF está trabajando con el Servicio Nacional de Áreas Protegidas de Bolivia (SERNAP) en un análisis para revisar y optimizar el Sistema de Cobros (SISCO) en Áreas Protegidas (APs). CSF provee apoyo técnico para optimizar y posiblemente expandir el SISCO a APs adicionales a aquellas en las que este sistema ya está vigente. Esta revisión de tarifas y potencial implementación del SISCO en áreas adicionales se basará en un análisis cuantitativo de flujos financieros, desde la generación del ingreso hasta la redistribución a las APs. El proyecto también incluye actividades coordinadas de difusión para compartir y discutir los resultados con autoridades del SERNAP, directores de las APs y operadores de turismo.

Antecedentes.

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.

Cost-Benefit Analysis for the proposed Río Nieva Protected Area, Peru

CSF is conducting a cost-benefit analysis (CBA) for the creation of a protected area in northwestern Peru, Río Nieva. This study will use the most rigorous possible application of the benefit transfer method, in which results from existing work will be extrapolated to this specific site.

Comparative Analysis of Conservation Agreement Programs in the Amazon

CSF is working on a research and capacity building project for the World Bank to increase effectiveness of government-run conservation agreement and payment for ecosystem services (PES) programs in the Amazon Sustainable Landscapes (ASL) Program region.

Despite the potential for conservation agreements and PES mechanisms to make conservation attractive to landowners, program characteristics that efficiently deliver avoided deforestation and related goals are still not consistently included in program design.
