Choice Experiment Application and Presentation of Results to support the design of the Federal District Forest Compensation Law - Brazil

CSF participated in a meeting held on October 27th, 2016, at the Federal District Urban Development Agency (Terracap) in Brasília. The meeting’s goal was to contextualize and carry out the facilitation process and data collection with members of the Aliança Cerrado, to be used to support the design of the new Forest Compensation Law of the Federal District.
This meeting was conducted by Pedro Gasparinetti, CSF consultant, and opened by Raul do Valle, from the Environmental Department of the Federal District (SEMA-DF).

Definition of Ecological Equivalence levels for the Federal District Forest Compensation Law - Brazil

Conservation Strategy Fund (CSF-Brazil) worked together with the Environmental Department of the Federal District (SEMA-DF) to support the design of the new Forest Compensation Law of the Federal District, in Brazil. Nowadays, this law aims defines how much should be restored to compensate the vegetation suppression by, for example, real estate and urban infrastructure projects. The current law is criticized for two main reasons: (1) it imposes too high costs for entrepreneurs; and (2) it is environmentally inefficient.

From all of us at CSF: Thank you!
