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.

Biodiversity Understanding in Infrastructure and Landscape Development (BUILD)

Through an agreement with the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and support from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, Conservation Strategy Fund (CSF) have launched a comprehensive initiative in central Africa, expand CSF’s programs in the Andes-Amazon region, and initiate a limited program in Asia’s Himalayan region. The goal of the program is to promote biodiversity conservation through infrastructure best practices.

Over the next three years, CSF staff will focus on the backbones of economic development that often drive biodiversity loss: energy and transportation infrastructure. Although big infrastructure can augment the competitiveness of economic activities and increase people’s access to health care, education and other services, these projects also flood, fragment and often destroy ecosystems. To balance biodiversity conservation with infrastructure development, countries must better understand economic and ecological trade-offs.

Through a series of courses, regional forums, in-depth analyses of specific infrastructure projects, and other activities, CSF’s program will gather and aggressively share information globally on what countries are doing right, and work intensively with governments and other partners in Africa’s Albertine Rift and Andes-Amazon regions on policy innovations. This initiative will create lasting human capacity for infrastructure analysis, which will impact biodiversity conservation not only in the short term, but over the coming decades of economic growth.

The following are courses and projects being conducted under BUILD:

Ferramentas Econômicas para a Conservação e Planejamento de Infraestrutura na Amazônia - Formulário de Inscrição

Economic Tools for Conservation and Infrastructure Planning in the Albertine Rift

Herramientas Económicas para la Conservación en la Amazonía Andina - Perú 2012

Fortalecimiento de capacidades institucionales para la aplicación de herramientas económicas para la conservación en proyectos de infraestructura - Colombia

Fortalecimiento de capacidades institucionales para la aplicación de herramientas económicas para la conservación en proyectos de infraestructura - Bolivia

This project is made possible by the support of the American People through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).
