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.

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.

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.

CSF has been working with the Moore Foundation, IPAM, and FCDS to identify the relative riskiness of planned roads in the Amazon basin in terms of economic, social and environmental costs. 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.
