Monitoreo y conservación de fauna en zona ganadera, experiencias en latinoamericas

uploaded by Elspeth Halverson

Los sistemas de ganadería sostenible tienen el potencial de apoyar a los países en la mejora de su gobernanza territorial, lo que se traduce en la reducción de los conflictos ambientales, la promoción de la conservación de los ecosistemas y la generación de beneficios económicos para las familias.  En un esfuerzo conjunto, el Programa de las Naciones Unidas para el Desarrollo (PNUD), la iniciativa Good Growth Partnership, y el Programa ONU-REDD+ llevaron a cabo en junio un intercambio virtual de experiencias entre diferentes países y organizaciones sobre la gestión de especies en peligro de extinción en las zonas ganaderas de América Latina.

Sustainable Livestock Conservation and Monitoring, Experiences in Latin America

uploaded by Elspeth Halverson

Sustainable livestock systems have the potential to support countries in improving their territorial governance, which translates into the reduction of environmental conflicts, the promotion of the conservation of ecosystems and the generation of economic benefits for families.  In a joint effort, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the Good Growth Partnership and the UN REDD+ Program carried out, in June 2020, a virtual exchange of experiences between different countries and organizations on the management of endangered species in cattle-raising areas of Latin America.

Addressing smallholder resilience in coffee production in the Central Highlands, Viet Nam

uploaded by Florian Eisele

This analysis presents the business case for sustainable Robusta coffee cultivation in the Central Highlands region of Vietnam. In recent years, intercropping models involving coffee interspersed with shade or fruit trees have demonstrated their potential to generate multiple benefits to smallholders and the environment. This analysis focuses on the economic benefits of transitioning from an intensive coffee cultivation model to three different intercropping models: avocado, durian and cassia siamea and pepper, and makes recommendations concerning the transition pathway that will be most accessible to smallholders.

Briefing: "Développer une économie verte en Afrique : pourquoi les forêts comptent"

uploaded by Mihaela Secrieru

Les forêts africaines offrent un potentiel économique mais il est menacé par une demande croissante de produits forestiers et par l’empiètement des autres secteurs. Ici nous explorons le potentiel d’une approche favorable à l’économie verte pour le secteur forestier qui cherche à améliorer le bien-être humain et la justice sociale, tout en réduisant les risques environnementaux et les pénuries écologiques. Des interventions à travers l’Afrique qui visent à conserver, accroître et restaurer le capital naturel, encourager une utilisation rationnelle des ressources, ou promouvoir une consommation durable, montrent comment les forêts pourraient impulser une transformation vers une économie verte. Notre analyse de scénario indique qu’une sélection de ce type d’interventions, lorsqu’elles sont mises à l’échelle, pourrait contribuer à satisfaire l’augmentation de la demande de bois tout en permettant une gestion durable des forêts. Mais la mise à l’échelle d’interventions prometteuses nécessitera de prendre des mesures pour créer un environnement propice.

Briefing: "Growing a green economy in Africa: why forests matter"

uploaded by Mihaela Secrieru

There is economic potential in African forests but it is threatened by an increasing demand for forest products, and by encroachment from other sectors. The Briefing explores the potential of a ‘green economy’ approach to the forest sector, which seeks to improve human wellbeing and social equity while reducing environmental risks and ecological scarcities. Interventions across Africa that aim to conserve, enhance and restore natural capital; increase resource efficiency; or promote sustainable consumption, show how forests could help drive a green economy transformation. Our scenario analysis indicates that a selection of such interventions, when scaled up, could help to meet increased demand for timber while enabling sustainable forest management. But scaling up of promising interventions will require action to create an enabling environment.
