Análises

A Conservação Estratégica apoia conservacionistas locais na utilização de ferramentas da economia que os permitam encontrar soluções inteligentes e eficientes para os problemas ambientais mais urgentes. Desde a sua criação, a CSF conduziu dezenas de estudos sobre ambientes florestais, fluviais e costeiros. A maior parte dos nossos projetos é focada nos Trópicos, pois estes apresentam níveis extraordinários de biodiversidade. Para maximizar a influência e a qualidade dos nossos estudos, nós envolvemos profissionais de renome e organizações conservacionistas em todos os projetos.

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.

Optimizing Bolivia’s Protected Area Fee System

CSF is working closely with SERNAP (Servicio Nacional de Áreas Protegidas, National Service of Protected Areas) on an analysis to review and optimize Bolivia's protected area (PA) fee system. We are providing technical support to optimize and possibly expand the System of Collections (SISCO) to additional PAs. This revision of fees and potential implementation of SISCO to additional areas will be based on quantitative analysis of financial flows, from income generation to distribution back to the PAs. The project also involves coordinated dissemination activities to share and discuss results with SERNAP authorities, PA Directors, and tour operators.

Background

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.

Fortaleciendo la participación del sector privado y la sociedad boliviana en la conservación

Con el apoyo de la Fundación Good Energies, CSF está trabajando para crear una plataforma innovadora en Bolivia llamada CASA Verde, la cual tiene como objetivo mejorar la conservación mediante la promoción de una mayor participación y conciencia entre la sociedad.

El primer paso de este proyecto fue una evaluación de factibilidad de la plataforma, la cual se realizó en 2017. El estudio concluyó que la implementación de CASA Verde es factible dado que el sector privado está interesado en apoyar la plataforma. Varias ONG quieren ser parte de los proyectos que apoyará CASA Verde y las personas mostraron una buena disposición para contribuir monetariamente a la plataforma.

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.

Análise de negócios de restauração de florestas no Amazonas, Brasil

A Conservação Estratégica (CSF-Brasil), em parceria com o World Widlife Fund (WWF-Brasil), conduziu uma avaliação de modelos de negócios de restauração florestal economicamente promissores para o investimento privado no sul do estado do Amazonas (AM), Brasil.

A Declaração de Nova York sobre Florestas - estabelecida durante a cimeira do clima organizada pelas Nações Unidas em 2014 - definiu como a meta a restauração 350 milhões de hectares no mundo todo até 2030 para contribuir para a mitigação do aquecimento global. Porém, mobilizar fundos do setor privado para superar a lacuna financeira para alcançar a restauração da paisagem florestal (RPF) em escala é um grande desafio.

Developing a Green Regency in the Heart of Borneo: Sustainable Landscape Planning in Sintang Regency, West Kalimantan

With the rise of jurisdictional approaches to sustainable commodity sourcing and pressure to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals, a number of regencies and provinces in Indonesia have taken steps to embrace sustainable and low-carbon development plans. CSF is supporting the government and stakeholders in Sintang Regency to collectively design and implement a Green Regency plan that includes sustainable land use practices and better governance. We are contributing expertise in economics, sustainable development, and strategic planning, and working closely with the local government, who are overseeing the process with the support from local government and civil society organizations (CSOs) .

What do fishermen truly stand to lose from the creation of large MPAs? Comparing claims with actual economic costs

CSF is investigating the fishing-related opportunity costs of existing large-scale marine protected areas (MPAs) using Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument (PMNM) and Pacific Remote Islands Marine National Monument (PRI) as case studies. Specifically, CSF is working to evaluate the extent to which fishing regulations have been implemented at each MPA.

Evaluating the economic, social and environmental costs of planned road projects in the Amazon Basin

With generous support from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, CSF is working on a project to identify the relative riskiness of planned road projects in terms of economic, social and environmental costs in the Amazon basin, and to engage decision makers to ensure that this analysis is relevant, understood and to the greatest extent possible considered in decision-making processes.

Guidelines for USAID on integrating ecosystem service values into cost-benefit analysis

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) is among the largest international development agencies worldwide. One of the tools USAID uses to select, design, and improve programming is cost-benefit analysis (CBA). As part of the USAID BRIDGE (Biodiversity Results and Integrated Development Gains Enhanced) project, the USAID Office of Forestry and Biodiversity is exploring the use of ecosystem service valuations in Agency CBAs.
