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.

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.

Local economic costs of the proposed Isiolo dam: A scoping study

CSF conducted a desk-based study of potential local costs associated with the construction of the proposed Isiolo Dam in the Ewaso Ng’iro River in Kenya.

The dam has been identified by Kenya’s National Water Conservation and Pipeline Corporation as necessary to improve local livelihood by providing water for domestic and livestock use, small irrigation activities, and in the future, for tourists in the proposed Isiolo Resort City.

However, there has also been opposition to the proposed construction, based on concerns that the dam could expose herders downstream to drought, negatively affect endangered wildlife, and put the local wildlife-tourism based economy at risk.

Colombia Launches New Bird Tourism Strategy, With a Little Help From CSF!

Colombia has the greatest bird diversity in the world

Local media in Colombia covered an analysis carried out by CSF on the economic potential of international birding tourism to Colombia. This study, conducted with the National Audubon Society and the University of The Andes has played an important role in both convincing Colombia’s government to launch its bird tourism strategy, and suggesting that protection of important bird areas and local capacity building be part of the approach.

From all of us at CSF: Thank you!
