No 3: Modelo de optimización para evaluación ex ante de alternativas productivas y cuantificación de externalidades ambientales en cuencas andinas

Autores/Authors: Quintero, Marcela, Rubén Darío Estrada y James García
Año/Year: 2006
Editores: Centro Internacional de la Papa (CIP)

Tamaño/Size: 5,04 MB

Resumen: El presente trabajo es una metodología que integra, de manera armónica, la trilogía “valoración de recursos naturales-economía-impacto social” en la gestión de las cuencas. Se busca aprovechar, por una parte, los vínculos positivos entre la eficiencia económica y el mejoramiento ambiental y, por otra, intervenir para crear nuevas señales económicas que hagan que todas las decisiones de producción y consumo tomen en cuenta sus efectos sobre el ambiente.

No 2: Pago por servicios ambientales en Latinoamérica y sus perspectivas en los Andes: Una visión desde la práctica

El presente análisis crítico de las experiencias de Pagos por Servicios Ambientales (PSA) en Latinoamérica tiene como objetivo identificar cuáles serían los esquemas de compensación que pueden estimular la inversión rural y de esta manera contribuir al desarrollo de las poblaciones de los Andes y a la conservación de los servicios ambientales.

No 4: Andean System of Basins: Watershed Profiles Enhancing Agricultural Water Productivity through Strategic Research

The nine basin profiles of the CGIAR Challenge Program on Water and Food (CPWF) provide a 9 broad overview of the basin areas, their development, their potential, and how the water used for agriculture can be made to produce more food. Careful use of the basin water in producing more hydropower, better transport, enhanced stocks of fish and aquatic plants, and cleaner water for humans and animals will contribute to the reduction in poverty levels. The Challenge Program now has an approved Research Strategy, this series of baseline publications, and a number of research projects operating, all of which should contribute to the achievement of its vision and goals.

This report on the Andes System of Basins presents a comprehensive synthesis of the agricultural water use and productivity in the Basins (Andean System, Indo-Gangetic, Karkheh, Limpopo Ri9ver, Mekong River, Nile River, Sao Francisco, Volta and Yellow River). The characteristics of seven watersheds in the system are included.

For consistency across basins/sub-basins, indicators were identified and included in each theme covered by the profile. Research problems, socioeconomic conditions, and issues and opportunities were categorized for each basin. The goal was to identify factors affecting agricultural productivity, food security, health, environmental sustainability, and poverty.

No 5: Environmental Services for the Conservation of Soil and Water; Lessons from the Andes

CPWF project reports have covered extensively the research methodologies carried out in the Andes. Implicit in their objectives was whether identifiable potential existed for established PES schemes. This evaluation was commissioned by CONDESAN to understand how these research project deliverables contribute to the PES knowledge and if there is a potential to harness these findings and develop PES schemes. The synthesis seeks to answer key questions around the project’s experiences to date, their contribution and reflection.
