File Wildlife TRAPS: Revised Monitoring Framework and Midterm Performance Assessment by Tracy Clark — last modified Jan 09, 2019 08:52 AM
Wildlife Trafficking Response, Assessment, and Priority Setting (Wildlife TRAPS) was launched in 2013 and is implemented by TRAFFIC, IUCN’s strategic partnership with World Wildlife Fund (WWF). Wildlife TRAPS seeks to increase recognition by authorities and multi-sectoral stakeholders that wildlife trafficking is a global issue that requires a multicountry, multi-sectoral, and multipartner response. This midterm assessment of the project began with a review of the existing theory of change and performance management plan. Through this phase, the assessment team developed a revised project monitoring framework against which progress and performance could be assessed. The second review phase focused on answering four essential questions about the project’s enabling conditions, monitoring and evaluation, and evidence.

Business and Biodiversity Offsets Programme Webinar - Thursday 20 Sept: Ensuring No Net Loss for people and biodiversity Sep 20, 2018 from 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM by Portal Web Editor
Governments, businesses, and lenders worldwide are adopting an objective of no net loss (NNL) or Net Gain (NG) of biodiversity and using the 'mitigation hierarchy' to achieve it. Although ecological challenges to achieve NNL are debated, social impacts associated with losses and gains of biodiversity and how these can be addressed have received much less attention. The Business and Biodiversity Offsets Programme (BBOP) Standard calls for biodiversity offsets to ensure people are 'no worse off', but more work is needed on specifically how to bring ecosystem services, and impacts on human wellbeing, into NNL/NG projects. One challenge is that social and ecological specialists do not always work in tandem when designing and implementing NNL/NG projects.

File Integrating Ecosystem Values into Cost-Benefit Analysis: Recommendations for USAID and Practitioners by Portal Web Editor — last modified Apr 15, 2019 02:01 PM
This document provides recommendations for the incorporation of ecosystem service valuations into Agency cost-benefit analysis (CBA) across sectors, both for USAID staff that produce or use CBAs and for USAID as an institution. In addition, this document provides specific guidance for USAID sectors that are commonly integrated with biodiversity—including global climate change, food security, energy and infrastructure, and water, sanitation and hygiene—but the process and principles described here are relevant for CBAs in any sectors.
