Incorporating Ecosystem Services into Urban Planning in Mexico

CSF is working with decision makers in three cities in Mexico - Mérida, León and Morelia - providing technical and political guidance on how to integrate ecosystem service values into urban planning. Following consultation workshops with various stakeholders in each city, we will implement ecosystem service valuations in protected areas surrounding these cities. The results of these studies will inform public policy and urban planning within the municipalities.

This project is part of the Climate Protection Program in the Mexican Urban Policy "CiClim", financed by the International Climate Initiative (IKI) and implemented by GIZ.

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

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.

Nova publicação: Promovendo a implementação do Código Florestal para preservar a biodiversidade brasileira

Em parceria com o Observatório do Código Florestal (OCF) e Secretarias de Meio Ambiente, a Conservação Estratégica (CSF-Brasil) concluiu um estudo sobre a implementação de Cotas de Reserva Ambiental (CRAs) no Maranhão (MA) e oportunidades na Bahia (BA) e Tocantins (TO). Visamos subsidiar o Estado do MA na implementação do mercado de CRAs, e promover um diálogo e troca de experiência entre o MA, BA e TO. O propósito a maior do estudo é de subsidiar maior eficiência na conservação de ecossistemas e florestas em termos econômicos e ambientais nos biomas Amazônia, Cerrado e Caatinga.
