The study analyzed the demand and supply of tourism in Mato Grosso state (MT) state to support the development of sustainable tourism in Indigenous Lands (ILs) of the Juruena river basin.
CSF-Brazil conducted a feasibility study of the most promising restoration business models for private investment in southern Amazon (AM) state, Brazil. We conducted an economic assessment of three restoration models based on agroforestry found in the field: (1) Guaraná; (2) Coffee, cocoa and guaraná; (3) Coffee, cocoa, guaraná, açaí and banana. Feasibility results show that private investors can be attracted by these compelling business cases.

In partnership with the Forest Code Observatory (OCF) and Brazilian State level Environment Agencies, CSF-Brazil has concluded a study on the implementation of Environmental Reserve Quotas (CRAs) in the state of Maranhão (MA), and opportunities in Bahia (BA) and Tocantins (TO). We aim to support MA in the CRAs market implementation and to promote dialogue and experience sharing among MA, BA and TO. The ultimate goal of the study is to promote ecosystem and forest conservation in a more economically efficient and environmentally sound way in the Amazon, Cerrado and Caatinga Brazilian biomes.

Our goal is to promote better infrastructure decision-making in Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, and Peru by contributing reliable data to the national road planning process.
