Análisis

En Conservación Estratégica (CSF) ayudamos a los conservacionistas locales a utilizar herramientas económicas para que encuentren soluciones inteligentes y eficientes a los problemas ambientales más urgentes. Desde la creación de CSF en 1998, hemos llevado a cabo numerosos proyectos de análisis en bosques, ríos y ambientes costeros. La mayor parte de nuestro trabajo se ha concentrado en los trópicos, donde los niveles de diversidad biológica son extraordinariamente altos. Para maximizar el alcance y la calidad de nuestro trabajo, incluimos en todos nuestros proyectos a expertos y organizaciones que se destacan en el campo de la conservación.

La Iniciativa para la Conservación en la Amazonía Andina (ICAA)

¿QUÉ ES ICAA?

La Iniciativa para la Conservación en la Amazonía Andina (ICAA) es un programa regional de largo plazo creado por la Agencia de los Estados Unidos para el Desarrollo Internacional (USAID), que integra los esfuerzos de más de 40 organizaciones socias, locales e internacionales, para fortalecer la conservación del bioma amazónico en Colombia, Ecuador y Perú.

Global Landscape Restoration Reference Tool

In partnership with Conservation International, CSF-Brazil is developing a restoration reference tool, to provide key information on the costs and benefits of successful ecosystem restoration projects in Cambodia, Indonesia, and Peru.

Specifically, the tool will include information about:

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.

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.

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.

Incorporating Ecosystem Services into Urban Planning in Mexico

CSF, in partnership with GIZ, is providing technical and political guidance on how to integrate ecosystem service values into urban planning to the city governments of León, Mérida and Morelia.

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

In partnership with Oceana, CSF conducted 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 estimated the benefits from the creation of the proposed MPA and compared 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.
