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.

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.

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

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

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.

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.

Incorporating Ecosystem Services into Urban Planning in Mexico

CSF, in partnership with GIZ, is providing technical and political guidance on how to integrate ecosystem service values into urban planning to the city governments of León, Mérida and Morelia.

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.

Accelerating fisheries reform through economic analysis and capacity building for Indonesian Fisheries Management Areas

In recent years, Indonesia’s Ministry of Marine Affairs and Fisheries (MMAF) has made bold moves towards fisheries policy reform. Efforts to improve national fisheries management have included combating illegal, unreported, and unregulated (IUU) fishing activities, and bans on destructive fishing gear within Indonesian Fisheries Management Areas (FMAs).

CSF is working with MMAF to develop a coherent national strategy for a sustainable fisheries management, including access, inputs, and output controls, that will maximize the value of Indonesia’s fishery resources.

Specifically, our role includes:

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.
