File Emerging Issues - 1. China’s Growing Demand for Wood, and 2. Fast-Wood Forestry by Portal Web Editor — last modified Jan 10, 2013 07:42 AM
USAID Forestry Programs Technical Notes on Emerging Issues in Global Forest Management September 2005 ******************** Issue I: China’s Growing Demand for Wood and Its Impact on Global Forests China’s emergence as a global economic power is likely to continue, and its dependence on forest products, both domestic and imported, is expected to continue to grow. This will have dramatic social, environmental, and economic impacts on the global forest sector. Just as China’s increasing consumption of oil is changing the global oil market, China is also changing the global market for wood products. Countries, companies, and communities that have or use forest resources are being forced to adapt to this changing marketplace. ******************** Issue II: Fast-Wood Forestry There is a growing global trend toward Fast-Wood Forestry. This trend is being driven by global factors that are unlikely to be suppressed or controlled. It is important for all forest resource stakeholders to be aware of what is happening and understand why it is happening, so that they respond appropriately and effectively.

File Integrating Biodiversity and Climate Change Adaptation in Activity Design by Gateway Web Editor — last modified Jan 30, 2018 09:54 AM
This brief provides recommendations that can be implemented at various stages of the USAID program cycle to achieve appropriate and effective integration. It should also be useful to other funding and implementing organizations. We focus primarily at the activity level, but scoping recommendations and approaches also apply to the project design (PAD) level. This brief is accompanied by four case studies of USAID activities with i) Biodiversity Conservation and Climate Change Adaptation in Activity Design funding, ii) Biodiversity Conservation funding only and iii) Climate Change Adaptation in Activity Design funding only. Approaches and best practices learned from those activities (in the Nepal, Southern Africa Regional, Ecuador, and Asia Regional missions) have informed this brief.
File Understanding Biodiversity – Development Integration Efforts and Opportunities by Gateway Web Editor — last modified Nov 06, 2017 11:09 AM
This report presents the results of a broad review to understand how other agencies and organizations have defined and integrated biodiversity with other sectors. The purpose of this review was to highlight some ways that various actors have approached integration to help USAID learn from what has been done and use this learning to inform its own approach to integration. More specifically, the review sought to: 1) Capture the state of the art on integration; 2) Understand current practices related to integration; and 3) Recommend a way forward.

File Conservation Enterprises: Using a Theory of Change Approach to Examine Evidence for Biodiversity Conservation by Sue Hoye — last modified Feb 14, 2018 03:35 PM
In this brief, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Bureau for Economic Growth, Education, and Environment (E3) Office of Forestry and Biodiversity (FAB) Measuring Impact (MI) project examined the evidence presented in the studies included in Roe et al.’s systematic review of alternative livelihood activites. MI examined the evidence in these studies relative to the assumptions in the theory of change described for conservation enterprises. Key findings include the following: 1) None of the assessments of activities supporting conservation enterprises were designed with a clear theory of change making it difficult to relate some of the outcomes that were measured to the assumptions underlying the strategic approach; 2) Most established enterprises generated economic benefits; 3) Economic benefits co-occurred with positive changes in behavior only about half the time; and 4) There was virtually no assessment of whether changes in behavior led to threat reduction.
