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.

Global Landscape Restoration Reference Tool

In partnership with Conservation International, CSF-Brazil is developing a restoration reference tool, to provide key information on the costs and benefits of successful ecosystem restoration projects in Cambodia, Indonesia, and Peru.

Specifically, the tool will include information about:

Guia de Mecanismos de Financiamento para apoio de gestão e implementação de Áreas Protegidas locais e outras medidas de conservação

A Conservação Estratégica (CSF-Brasil) está produzindo um guia com informações que contribuam para captação de recursos financeiros a serem utilizados na gestão ou implementação de áreas protegidas a nível local.

Áreas protegidas contribuem para conectividade ecológica e para a proteção da biodiversidade. Além disso, a nível local, são necessárias para o desenvolvimento sustentável da cidade e a provisão de serviços ecossistêmicos essenciais, como acesso a água potável, proteção contra desastres e espaços de lazer. Porém, a criação e gestão destas áreas são grandes desafios para governos, principalmente no âmbito de recursos financeiros.

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.
