Upgrading Brazil's Official Conservation Investment Model

Managing national parks and reserves requires reliable information about needed investments in equipment, infrastructure and research. CSF recently revamped the model, called the Minimum Conservation Investment model (IMC), used by Brazilian public land managers to calculate these needs. The project was a partnership between CSF-Brasil, the Brazilian Ministry of Environment and GiZ, the German overseas cooperation agency.

In this process, CSF adapted and integrated financial models we had previously developed for protected areas. We reviewed and corrected unit cost figures used by the IMC and built in the capacity to forecast investments over a ten-year period. Finally, we added a feature to permit forecasting investment needed to create new protected areas.

Subsidies, Credit and Cattle in Southern Amazonas

Cattle ranching is a leading cause of deforestation in the Amazon Basin. Forests are razed for pasture when landowners perceive that more profits can be made from cows than from the various products of the intact forest. This calculation is influenced by the availability of subsidized credit, long used a tool to drive economic expansion on the agricultural frontier.

Economic Tools for the Conservation of Tropical Ecosystems

The main goals of this course were (i) to give ICMBio analists familiarity with the main concepts of economics and how these concepts apply to conservation of the environment and natural resources; and (ii) to teach them the basics of designing and analyzing the financial feasibility of tourism concessions in protected areas using a financial model developed by CSF (CONCESS 1.0). At the end of the course, CSF supported participants in structuring ideas on how to use the tool to analyze real concessions in Brazilian federal protected areas. The course presented the fundamental concepts of microeconomics, which deal with market theory, and then moved on to the area of environmental valuation and environmental policy.
