File Building accountable resource governance institutions by Allison Taylor — last modified Dec 19, 2019 03:02 PM
Formal institutions are central actors in natural resource governance decisions and a key arena in which policies, laws and regulations ranging from forest concessions to trade in wildlife products are negotiated and implemented. As gatekeepers in resource management decisions, natural resource governance institutions are frequent targets for actors seeking undue influence on these decisions. Getting to know institutions – how they work, the personalities involved, the pressures they are under, where their revenues come from – is a critical first step towards minimizing corrupt influences and unlocking their anti-corruption potential.
File Understanding effects of corruption on law enforcement and environmental crime by Allison Taylor — last modified Dec 19, 2019 02:44 PM
Law enforcement agencies monitor and enforce laws that protect landscapes, seascapes, and the species that inhabit them. In many countries environmental crimes are a low priority for law enforcement authorities, particularly when they are under-resourced and face a range of other threats to the rule of law. Corruption helps violators circumvent these laws and regulations and makes law enforcement a much less reliable tool for limiting and preventing environmental harms.
File Measuring Impact: Six Years of Improving Conservation at USAID by Gateway Web Editor — last modified Dec 12, 2019 09:14 AM

File Better Biodiversity Integration Through Geospatial Analysis by BRIDGE — last modified Dec 06, 2019 03:13 PM
This guide describes the use of geospatial analysis for integrating biodiversity conservation with other development sectors at USAID. It consists of four chapters corresponding to the four stages of the program cycle and provides the why, when and how of using geospatial analysis, including the rationale for the use of geospatial data and analysis, enabling conditions, best practices, and an example from USAID programming. This work represents a joint effort of the USAID Office of Forestry and Biodiversity and the Bureau of Latin America and the Caribbean’s Environment Team and provides a starting point for USAID staff in incorporating geospatial analysis into their own work.
File Digital Approaches to Demand Reduction: Recent Results from the Field Presentation by Portal Web Editor — last modified Oct 09, 2019 12:27 PM
In September 2019, the CWT Learning Group and the World Bank’s Global Wildlife Program co-hosted a webinar to share the recent results from demand reduction campaigns in Thailand. USAID’s Wildlife Asia Activity helps reduce demand for wildlife products by communicating, mobilizing, and advocating for ways to change practices and build new social norms around the use of wildlife products. Concurrently, the World Wildlife Fund has launched a global initiative to reduce demand for ivory by combining policy advocacy, consumer research, behavior change efforts, and market monitoring. In addition to this presentation, the webinar recording is also available below.
File Conservation and Law Enforcement in Gorongosa and Niassa: A Study of the Criminal Justice Process for Wildlife Crime, from Apprehension to Incarceration by Gateway Web Editor — last modified Oct 09, 2019 12:31 PM
In July 2019, USAID/Mozambique released a comprehensive study of the wildlife criminal justice process in Mozambique and identified key areas for improvement. Successful enforcement of wildlife trafficking laws requires apprehending perpetrators and shepherding them through the criminal justice system. This study, Conservation & Enforcement in Gorongosa & Niassa: A Study of the Criminal Justice Process for Wildlife Crime from Apprehension to Incarceration, was undertaken to answer a key learning question pertaining to wildlife trafficking in Mozambique: Under what conditions does increased detection of environmental crimes lead to prosecution and punishment? To answer this question, the Mozambique Monitoring and Evaluation Mechanisms and Services team conducted interviews to map Mozambique’s criminal justice system. The team compared the ideal legal pathway that wildlife criminals should follow with the steps taken in reality and used discrepancies to highlight areas for strengthening the system.
File Identity in a Digital Age: Infrastructure For Inclusive Development by Portal Web Editor — last modified Jul 31, 2019 07:32 PM
This report assesses the opportunities and risks of digital ID systems in development. We particularly focus on the role of project-driven ID investments and argue for a broader view of digital ID as essential development infrastructure.

File Biodiversity Integration Case Study Competition Winners by BRIDGE — last modified Jul 24, 2019 08:11 PM
The case study competition sought examples of biodiversity integration across a range of sectors, from biodiversity programming with other sector development outcomes to health or food security programming with biodiversity outcomes. BRIDGE is working with the winners to refine cases to share with USAID, partners and the public.
File Health Reference Sheet by BRIDGE — last modified Aug 13, 2019 05:32 PM
Intact, biologically diverse ecosystems play important roles in promoting health and fighting disease by providing goods and services including wild foods, natural medicines, and clean air and water. Human health also plays an important role in biodiversity outcomes, as poor health and low access to health services are drivers of biodiversity loss.
File Water and Sanitation Reference Sheet by BRIDGE — last modified Jul 22, 2019 01:35 PM
Natural ecosystems capture, store and purify water, allowing biodiversity programming to complement and protect water and sanitation investments. Similarly, by improving waste water treatment and increasing water use efficiency, water and sanitation programming reduces the pollution of aquatic ecosystems and lessens the amount of water taken from rivers or lakes.
File Democracy, Human Rights and Governance Reference Sheet by BRIDGE — last modified Jul 22, 2019 01:34 PM
Democracy, human rights and governance (DRG) challenges—such as weak institutions, insecure access to natural resources and lack of participation in decision-making—are key drivers of biodiversity loss, and DRG programming can yield substantial benefits for biodiversity. Similarly, biodiversity programming often yields DRG co-benefits by promoting co-management of resources, investments in judicial systems and support to land tenure systems.
File Biodiversity Reference Sheet by BRIDGE — last modified Sep 11, 2019 05:32 PM
Ecosystems provide goods and services critical to human development and well-being such as food, fiber, clean water, fertile soil and pollination. Opportunities for integrating biodiversity with other development sectors exist throughout the USAID portfolio, and can be realized by the coordination of existing programming, co-location of new activities or planned co-funding.
File Food Security Reference Sheet by BRIDGE — last modified Sep 11, 2019 05:35 PM
Ecosystems provide goods and services that support food production—including provision of wild foods and water, pest control and pollination—and biodiversity programming can have significant positive impacts on food security. Similarly, agriculture programming can sustainably increase productivity and incomes while minimizing impacts on the environment, yielding benefits for both food security and biodiversity.
