Increasing the Sustainability of Mangrove Management

CSF is collaborating with NatureServe and Pronatura Veracruz on a project for the Inter-American Development Bank to create a replicable model for mangrove ecosystem management. This model will be built on engagement of local communities using ecological condition assessment, economic valuation, and development of alternative livelihoods. The project is focused on the Alvarado Lagoon System in Veracruz, Mexico, a RAMSAR-recognized wetland of global importance. CSF’s primary role in this project is leading the economics, with a focus on helping communities perceive and develop solutions to the market challenges they face in transitioning to sustainability.

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!
