Colombia Launches New Bird Tourism Strategy, With a Little Help From CSF!

Colombia has the greatest bird diversity in the world

Local media in Colombia covered an analysis carried out by CSF on the economic potential of international birding tourism to Colombia. This study, conducted with the National Audubon Society and the University of The Andes has played an important role in both convincing Colombia’s government to launch its bird tourism strategy, and suggesting that protection of important bird areas and local capacity building be part of the approach.

From all of us at CSF: Thank you!

São Luiz do Tapajós Dam Construction: Economic Impact and Analysis of Ecosystem Services’ Provision

CSF conducted a study on the economic impact that São Luiz do Tapajós could have had on local populations if its construction in the Brazilian Amazon had been approved.

We analyzed the loss of subsistence income and the impact on two ecosystem services: water quality reduction and the increase of CO2 equivalent emissions.
