smart energy + transportation infrastructure

Infrastructure investments in remote areas can transform landscapes and watersheds, unleashing irreversible, destructive change. Projects' impacts vary considerably and their approval is dependent on small groups of public decision-makers. Investments, especially remote roads, are often economically inefficient and usually have unnecessarily large environmental and social impacts. These characteristics - variable quality, concentrated decision-making, economic flaws and design shortcomings - add up to a big conservation opportunity, one in which good economic analyses can be influential. CSF's Smart Energy + Transportation Infrastructure program provides training to conservationists and decision-makers, as well as comprehensive cost-benefit analyses of infrastructure projects, such as dams and roads. Keen understanding of these projects at multiple levels of society will result in better decisions and large-scale conservation gains.

Análisis del esquema de compensación ambiental en el Perú y el rol potencial de las áreas protegidas

En diciembre de 2014, el Ministerio del Ambiente del Perú (MINAM) publicó una resolución ministerial estableciendo  los principales lineamientos para implementar la compensación ambiental de los impactos residuales de los proyectos extractivos y de infraestructura. Esta política es producto del trabajo desarrollado durante varios años, y gracias al análisis exhaustivo de parte del MINAM conjuntamente con el apoyo de CSF y de otras organizaciones, incluyendo a la Sociedad Peruana de Derecho Ambiental, The Nature Conservancy y Wildlife Conservation Society.

Estudo de impactos da usina hidrelétrica Teles-Pires na Amazônia brasileira

A Conservação Estratégica (CSF-Brasil) lançou a publicação "Indenização em Projetos Hidrelétricos: Uma Revisão de Aspectos Legais, Econômicos e Experiências". O objetivo do estudo é de: 1) oferecer informações que subsidiem ações buscando compensações e indenizações justas às comunidades atingidas por barragens e o desenho de Programas de Compensação que atendam à visão de futuro das comunidades; e 2) conscientizar a sociedade sobre os impactos socioambientais de grandes projetos de infraestrutura na Amazônia.

Local economic costs of the proposed Isiolo dam: A scoping study

CSF conducted a desk-based study of potential local costs associated with the construction of the proposed Isiolo Dam in the Ewaso Ng’iro River in Kenya.

The dam has been identified by Kenya’s National Water Conservation and Pipeline Corporation as necessary to improve local livelihood by providing water for domestic and livestock use, small irrigation activities, and in the future, for tourists in the proposed Isiolo Resort City.

However, there has also been opposition to the proposed construction, based on concerns that the dam could expose herders downstream to drought, negatively affect endangered wildlife, and put the local wildlife-tourism based economy at risk.
