Análisis del esquema de compensación ambiental en el Perú y el rol potencial de las áreas protegidas

En diciembre de 2014, el Ministerio del Ambiente del Perú (MINAM) publicó una resolución ministerial estableciendo  los principales lineamientos para implementar la compensación ambiental de los impactos residuales de los proyectos extractivos y de infraestructura. Esta política es producto del trabajo desarrollado durante varios años, y gracias al análisis exhaustivo de parte del MINAM conjuntamente con el apoyo de CSF y de otras organizaciones, incluyendo a la Sociedad Peruana de Derecho Ambiental, The Nature Conservancy y Wildlife Conservation Society.

Multiplier Effects of Tourism Spending in Peru’s National Parks

With support from the Andes Amazon Fund, CSF is conducting an analysis on multiplier effects of tourism spending in Peru’s national parks. Peru has created eleven national parks and numerous other protected areas in its Andes Amazon region covering approximately 18 million hectares. While efforts are currently under way to address existing funding gaps, the long term financial sustainability of Peru’s protected areas requires a substantial, long-term increase in allocation of public funds. Furthermore, Peru’s biological importance justifies expansion of the existing protected area system in the Andes Amazon, further increasing funding required.

From all of us at CSF: Thank you!

Water Services and Protected Areas in Peru

Similar to other national protected areas' systems across the world, Peru’s national parks are underfunded. SERNANP, the national protected areas agency, is currently evaluating the funding needs of the national parks under its responsibility, to prepare a plan to address this gap. The Project Finance for Permanence initiative (or Patrimonio del Peru–PdP, as known locally) is based on similar experiences in Brazil and Costa Rica, where governments and donors agree to provide funding to permanently support the financial needs of the protected areas, while contributions are conditional to compliance with commitments to achieve protection goals and increase public funding for protected areas, within an agreed period of time.

Beneficios económicos del acuerdo de paz en Colombia, a partir del turismo de observación de aves

Colombia es el país con la mayor diversidad de aves en el mundo, con un registro aproximado de 1.900 especies, equivalentes a un 20% de las existentes en todo el planeta. Esta característica resalta el gran potencial del país en cuanto a la oferta turística especializada en la observación de aves o aviturismo. Los esfuerzos llevados a cabo por el gobierno colombiano para brindar mayor seguridad dentro del país, poniendo fin al largo conflicto armado, y la promoción del ecoturismo, pueden ayudar a posicionar a Colombia como uno de los destinos más importantes para los observadores de aves de todo el mundo.

Quantifying the economic value of protected areas in Mexico

CSF has begun work with Mexico’s National Commission for Protected Areas (CONANP) and the German Corporation for International Cooperation (GIZ) to assess the economic value of the ecosystem services provided by the country's Cabo Pulmo National Park, Iztaccíhuatl-Popocatépetl National Park (Izta-Popo for short), Cozumel Reefs National Park, and Cozumel Island Flora and Fauna Protected Area.

CSF and WWF deliver policy forum on infrastructure and biodiversity in Nepal

In May Conservation Strategy Fund and World Wide Fund for Nature - Nepal (WWF Nepal) held a one-day policy forum on biodiversity conservation and infrastructure development. The forum covered environmental economics and policy tools used to integrate conservation and infrastructure plans in Nepal. The discussion focused on how infrastructure planning and decision-making could be improved across the Himalayan Region. Dr. Krishna Chandra Paudel, Secretary of Nepal’s Ministry of Science, Technology and Environment, specifically addressed the need to comprehensively evaluate infrastructure projects and policies at the national level.
