CSF llevó a cabo en Noviembre un Taller Internacional de Expertos en Incentivos Económicos y Pagos por Servicios Ambientales. El objetivo del taller fue presentar y discutir diferentes temas en torno al diseño e implementación de esquemas de incentivos, con el fin de proporcionar insumos y recomendaciones para la construcción de un Mecanismo de Acuerdos de Conservación que CSF está diseñando para el norte amazónico de Bolivia, en coordinación con Conservación Internacional. Las recomendaciones de los expertos fueron de mucha utilidad para definir puntos centrales del diseño del mecanismo.

Economic Tools for Protected Area Tourism in Brazil

The four day training on Economic and Financial Feasibility of Supporting Services for Visitation of Conservation Units (Unidades de Conservação - UCs) was hold at the Biodiversity National Academy (ACADEBio), in Iperó, Brazil.

The course was attended by twenty-two members of the ICMBio from nine different states in Brazil who are responsible for protected areas management, three employees of the ACADEBio and one entrepreneur from the community-based tourism sector in the Amazon state.

Opportunity cost assessment and mapping Tropical Andes

International climate change discussions have identified the use of economic incentives as an important means to reduce deforestation. Governments in the Amazon Andes have created or are in the process of creating incentive mechanisms to pursue this goal, frequently alongside other complementary development and conservation objectives.  In order to be most effective, one of the key pieces of information that these mechanisms need is the opportunity cost of conservation. Unfortunately, this data is remarkably scarce in the region.
