File Legal Frameworks for REDD - Design and Implementation at the National Level (IUCN Environmental Policy and Law Paper No. 77) by LiLing Choo — last modified Feb 20, 2013 01:35 AM
Supplementary material for Forest Trend's Payments for Ecosystem Services Training Modules and Resources. Paper written by John Costenbader (Ed.), International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN). This paper provides a detailed overview of regulatory design and implementation options specifically for a non-lawyer audience. This paper is based on the findings from four case studies (Brazil, Cameroon, Guyana and Papua New Guinea), each representing varying geographies, forest cover and deforestation rates and stages of REDD preparation. The study questions whether legal clarity is an essential component for successful national REDD programs.

File Ecosystem Marketplace-State of Watershed Payments by Rose Hessmiller — last modified Jul 30, 2014 08:50 PM
A global research effort conducted by Ecosystem Marketplace identified a total of approximately 288 payments for watershed services (PWS) and water quality trading (WQT) programs in varying stages of activity over the past 30 years. In 2008, the baseline year, about 127 programs were actively receiving payments or transacting credits. The total transaction value from all programs actively engaged in 2008 is estimated at US$9.3 billion. Over the entire time span of recorded activity, total transaction value is estimated at slightly more than US$50 billion, impacting some 3.24 billion hectares. This report has 3 objectives, 1) to use project-level data to estimate the overall size and scope of the payments directed to protest or restore watershed services; 2) to account for the full spectrum of watershed services activities and track changes going forward, and 3) to look ahead at the opportunities and challenges based on the current level of transactions, experimentation, and lessons learned.

File Executive Summary - Synergies of Nature, Wealth, and Power Lessons From USAID Natural Resource Management Investments In Senegal by Portal Web Editor — last modified Nov 10, 2014 11:08 PM
With the completion of the Wula Nafaa project, USAID-Senegal and its partners concluded a ten-year program of integrated natural resource management with wealth creation and good governance components—a successful demonstration of the relevance and effectiveness of the NWP development paradigm. With a range of successful applications in different ecological and cultural contexts, a significant and measurable impact on income generation at the household level, and an impressive net return on development investment, the USAID Wula Nafaa program contains many valuable lessons for implementation of integrated NRM programs in Senegal as well as for improving NRM and catalyzing sustainable rural development around the globe.
File Conflict Management, Decentralization and Agropastoralism in Dryland West Africa by Portal Web Editor — last modified Oct 07, 2013 04:45 PM
This paper reports on a four-site study conducted in the Sahelian zone of Niger. The study takes a novel mixed methods approach for understanding conflict management from the perspective of rural peoples by not only describing past highly publicized conflicts but also by analyzing the steps rural peoples follow to manage disagreements that arise in their everyday lives. This “bottom- up” approach reveals both a capacity and preference among our informants to manage disagreements informally without involving village or extra-village authorities. Decentralization initiatives, by reworking the authority and responsibilities of authority-based systems, affect the role that these informal mechanisms, as mediated by social norms and relations, play in conflict management.
