File Social and Biodiversity Impact Assessment (SBIA) Manual for REDD+ Projects: Part 1 Version 2 – Core Guidance for Project Proponents by Portal Web Editor — last modified Feb 20, 2013 01:03 AM
The Climate, Community & Biodiversity (CCB) Standards, used to assess multiple benefits of the majority of forest carbon projects, provide robust standards; however, until now there has been limited guidance on how to undertake credible and cost-effective impact assessment. Forest Trends, the Climate, Community and Biodiversity Alliance (CCBA), Fauna & Flora International (FFI) and Rainforest Alliance have developed a user-friendly manual that enables land-based carbon project proponents to undertake cost-effective social and biodiversity impact assessment (SBIA). The SBIA Manual is oriented to the CCB Standards, but the approach described is applicable to other multiple benefit carbon standards, as well as to other types of payments for ecosystem services (PES) projects. This is version 2 of the Manual, released in October and launched via a webinar on November 22. There are three (3) parts to the manual 1-Core Guidance for Project Proponents (also available in both French and Spanish), 2-Social Impact Assessment Toolbox (also available in Spanish), and 3-Biodiversity Impact Assessment Toolbox). See Related Items for French and Spanish versions.

File Beyond Carbon: Biodiversity and Water Markets by Portal Web Editor — last modified Jan 10, 2013 09:51 AM
Ecosystem Marketplace Insights Booklet on biodiversity and water PES markets. This publication is meant to serve as context and provide background for the Katoomba conference: "Avoiding Deforestation in the Amazon through PES Markets" held in Mato Grosso, Brazil in April 2009. Brazil will have to look beyond carbon markets, to water and biodiversity, to ensure the comprehensive maintenance of all its ecosystem services. This compilation of selected articles that introduce the markets, delve into experiences outside of Brazil, and examine developments within the county. We have broken this volume into four parts: the first summarizes key government initiatives in Brazil, and offers a guide to “the Matrix” of PES schemes around the world (Part 1: The Big Picture). The second offers a close examination of regulated biodiversity and water markets in the United States. (Part 2: The State of Play). The third offers a case study of an innovative biodiversity offset project in Malaysia, PES schemes in the Andes, and an examination of the growing acceptance of ecosystem markets at the federal level in the United States (Part 3: Global Developments). The final part examines established water and biodiversity payment programs in Brazil (Part 4: Local Developments). See RELATED ITEMS for Portuguese version.

In FY09, Forest Trends worked with USAID‘s Standing Forests Conservation Markets Initiative (SFCMI), through TransLinks, with the goal of increasing capacity in developing countries to protect biodiversity and carry out avoided deforestation activities through payments for ecosystem services (PES). The geographic focus has been on high-priority areas including: the Brazilian Amazon, the Andean region, Southeast Asia, as well as West and Central Africa. This report reviews FY09 accomplishments.

File Challenges to Establishing Payments for Ecosystem Services in Gabon: A Case study of the Mbé River Basin by Portal Web Editor — last modified Feb 20, 2013 02:02 AM
WCS is working with the Government of Gabon on a new Payments for Ecosystem Services (PES) initiative to secure long-term protection of the high conservation value of the Mbé watershed in Gabon. The project is exploring ways to remunerate these upstream land managers for maintaining their land-use practices to secure the continued provision of a year round supply of high quality water. More broadly, the project also aims to address key barriers to developing sustainable PES mechanisms in Gabon and is being designed to maximize lesson learning and replicability.
File TransLinks: Case Study: Payments for Biodiversity Conservation in the Context of Weak Institutions Featured November 22, 2011 by Portal Web Editor — last modified Jul 30, 2014 07:47 PM
Implementing any conservation intervention, including Payments for Environmental Services (PES), in the context of weak institutions is challenging. The majority of PES programs have been implemented in situations where the institutional framework and property rights are strong and target the behaviors of private landowners. By contrast, this paper compares three PES programs from a forest landscape in Cambodia, where land and resource rights are poorly defined, governance is poor, species populations are low and threats are high.
