WCS Living Landscapes Program: Bulletins 2006 by portal web editor — last modified Jan 10, 2013 11:44 AM
Collection of LLP Bulletins 2006: Too often when conservation NGOs and development agencies embark on a new initiative, little thought is given to systematically capturing the ideas that evolved, the successes and failures, and the lessons learned, through the life of the program. The WCS Living Landscapes publications are designed to fill this gap. Unlike formal evaluations and annual reports, manuals and bulletins are meant for field staff. The publications help project teams to plan their activities strategically and monitor their performance, threat levels and conservation targets. Unlike scientific papers, the manuals are written as guidelines with simple, step-by-step instructions for the practitioners, not academics. Living Landscape publications will always be brief, will focus on conceptual and practical issues, and will be terminated when they are no longer considered valuable to WCS and its partners.

The WCS Working Papers series represents preliminary results of basic and applied field work supported by the Wildlife Conservation Society. The purpose of WCS Working Papers is to distribute project reports, benchmark data sets of historical significance, and other timely technical material in its entirety, and with as little delay as possible. The international standard serial numbers (issn) for WCS Working Papers are 1530-4426 (print) and 1534-7389 (online).

Fodder Shrubs, Enrich Feeds & Improve Livelihoods. January 2007. Newsletter from ICRAF… featuring their use of the SCALE process to increase farmer’s adoption of dairy fodder shrubs. SCALE: a five step-wise process. USE THE SCALE PROCESS FOR HIGHER TECHNOLOGY ADOPTION The key principle applied in System-wide Collaborative Action for Livelihoods and the Environment (SCALETM), is to start big, understand the larger context of an issue and integrate interdisciplinary best practices and solutions to a problem or issue into a framework and process. The SCALETM process can be applied in project or programme design, planning, organization, implementation, monitoring, evaluation and rewarding among other applications.

File Potential Impacts of Climate Change on Biodiversity in Central America, Mexico, and the Dominican Republic by Sarah Schmidt — last modified Jan 10, 2013 11:45 AM
The recently-published Fourth Assessment Report of the Inter-Governmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) suggests that Latin America and the Caribbean will certainly not be left unscathed by such global changes. Within the broader region, Mesoamerica and the Caribbean stand out as their biological resources of are globally significant, putting both sub-regions in the ranks of the world’s top twenty-five “biodiversity hotspots.” In Mesoamerica alone, 7% of the globe’s terrestrial species inhabit less than 1% of earth’s landmass. One key concern, therefore, is the impact climate change will have on such globally significant biodiversity. Among other questions, this study seeks to assess the potential impacts of rising temperatures and changing rainfall patterns on the region’s species and ecosystems.
