File Cooperation, Collective Action and Natural Resources Management in Burkina Faso: A Methodological Note. by Portal Web Editor — last modified Jan 10, 2013 04:16 PM
This paper presents a detailed description of the applied methodology used to study collective action in natural resource management (NRM). It also presents data that was collected in forty-eight villages in northeastern Burkina Faso on: A) Community level; B) Institutional level; C) Household level; D) Market level. It highlights that individuals may access networks and sustain membership in organizations primarily for private benefit in terms of increased production and improved marketing. Finally, it concludes that what is good for the individual may not benefit the group, and it may not improve the capacity of a community to engage in collective action.

File The Effect of Environmental Variability on Livestock and Land-Use Management: The Borana Plateau Southern Ethiopia by Portal Web Editor — last modified Jan 10, 2013 11:26 AM
This paper attempts to assess the effect of environmental variability on livestock and land-use management in the Borana plateau in Southern Ethiopia. The author assumes that the key determinants of the productivity and sustainability of the existing systems depend on the ability of the community members to cooperate over the use and maintenance of resources. The authors develop indicators of cooperation, and examine factors affecting these indicators, and use these indicators to determine the impact of cooperation on stock densities and land allocation patterns. The authors conclude that cooperation is positively related to factors that increase the profitability of livestock.

File Nature, Wealth and Power (Asia) by Carmen Tedesco — last modified Jan 10, 2013 11:42 AM
Asia, particularly South Asia, has the highest number of poor people in the world today. Many of these people are rural and depend on natural resources for their livelihoods and growth. If the United Nation’s Millennium Development Goals are to be achieved in the region urgent action is needed on rural poverty. The critical linkages between natural resources, growth and poverty alleviation, and governance and democracy are becoming more evident every day. And these linkages and complementarities are providing a powerful framework with which to analyze and attack rural issues.

File Guía para invertir en bosques localmente controlados by Portal Web Editor — last modified Mar 28, 2014 11:10 PM
Esta guía para invertir en bosques localmente controlados (IBLC, o ILCF por sus siglas en inglés) es el resultado de la iniciativa de la Growing Forest Partnerships, mediante la cual The Forests Dialogue coordinó 11 diálogos de gran alcance en los que participaron inversionistas, poseedores de derechos, gobiernos, donantes y otros actores interesados en el tema. Ante todo es una herramienta que permite tomar medidas prácticas, y los consejos que proporciona parten de una sólida evidencia que ha demostrado que las empresas forestales controladas localmente pueden ser exitosas, sostenibles y rentables para las partes que intervienen en ellas. Proporciona una visión de desarrollo basada en el mercado, enraizada en una comprensión de la economía de mercado globalizada, y se centra en el papel que desempeñan las pequeñas y medianas empresas (PyMEs); la “pieza faltante” en muchas economías en desarrollo.

File Non-timber Forest Products, Gender and Households in Nicaragua: a Commodity Chain Analysis by Portal Web Editor — last modified Jan 10, 2013 11:35 AM
This thesis focuses on the intersection of gender, households, and the non-timber forest product market. Based around the concept of commodity chain analysis, this research examines each stage in two non-timber forest products', straw brooms and coco baskets, life cycles from extraction to final sale. The first objective of this research is to contribute to the literature on NTFPs, and in general gender roles in Latin America, by examining the gendered division of labor within and among the stages of two specific NTFP commodity chains, and the ways in which this division influences how important these products are to household income and conservation. The second objective is look at how commodity chain analysis can be used to examine the above issues, thereby contributing to both NTFP and commodity chain analysis literature. The research shows that the construction of gender in Nicaragua underlies the different roles that men and women perform throughout the two non-timber forest product chains. The two chains represent varying degrees of participation by women and men, and this difference is explained by the prevalence of certain tasks. In the basket commodity chain there were more tasks that are labeled feminine, and in the broom commodity chain there are more tasks labeled male. In addition, the varying participation of men and women influence how income from these products are viewed within the households as well as where men and women stand as conservation stakeholders. Commodity chain analysis served as a useful tool to examine more closely the relationship of gender and households in nontimber forest products, and could be of great assistance to the various development projects using these products as a tool for sustainable development.
File Conocimiento y habilidades necesarias para participar en REDD+: un marco de competencias by Leif Kindberg — last modified May 20, 2015 04:16 PM
REDD+ tiene el potencial de reducir drásticamente las emisiones de gases de efecto invernadero, además de proporcionar otros beneficios sociales y ambientales. Las políticas de REDD+ tienen amplias implicaciones para los diferentes sectores económicos de los países en desarrollo, por ejemplo, la silvicultura, la agricultura y la industria, y para las personas que dependen de los bosques y el medioambiente local. A través de la CMNUCC y el apoyo técnico y financiero por parte de agencias multilaterales asociadas como el Fondo Cooperativo de Carbono para los Bosques (FCPF) y el Programa ONU-REDD, hay países que están diseñando políticas que guían la estructura y función de un mecanismo global de REDD+. Los enfoques negociados en el marco de la CMNUCC para REDD+ influyen a menudo en la elaboración de otros enfoques bosque-clima, incluidos los acuerdos bilaterales entre países desarrollados y los países en vías de desarrollo, y el financimiento de REDD+, incuyendo el mercado voluntario de compensaciones.
