In May 2016, staff from the CSF Brazil team travelled to the Salgado Paraense region, located on the northern coast of the state of Pará.  Their goal was to collect important information as part of our project on the sustainability of mangrove ecosystems. This project seeks to sensitize the government and society to the benefits these ecosystems provide, and make recommendations about economic instruments that could be used to promote financial sustainability of protected areas.

Economic instruments for ecosystem services conservation in mangroves located in federal protected areas

In 2015, CSF started a project within the scope of GEF Mangroves Program, in collaboration with FUNBIO (Brazilian Fund for Biodiversity) regarding the management of mangroves ecosystem services.

Around 90% of mangrove ecosystems in Brazil are located in protected areas. However, there are important deficiencies in terms of financial sustainability and resource management in these areas that affect natural capital stocks and biodiversity.

Therefore, we seek to study how different economic instrument designs may influence ecosystem services provision in mangroves. In order to do that we will:

1) Identify and prioritize ecosystem services provided by mangroves;
2) Assess the main ecosystem services values provided by mangroves in Brazil;
