The purpose of sentinel landscapes is to measure changes and understand long-term trends in socio-economic and biophysical variables across the 'forest transition curve' globally across comparative sites.
Sentinel Landscapes is a cross-cutting theme of CGIAR's Research Program on Forests, Trees and Agroforestry.

Transcript

  • 1. Monitoring Change, Creating Outcomes: Forests,Trees and Agroforestry in Sentinel LandscapesLaura Snook and Judy Loo, Forest Genetic Resources Programme4 April 2013
  • 2. Sentinel Landscapes stimulatedrapid approval of programRecognizing that:• Trees are long-lived• Can‟t achieve impact during 3 year-projects• Need for turning local to globalperspectives through comparisons• Current research efforts dispersed
  • 3. Key concept in ‘Forests, Trees and Agroforestry’Changing nature of forests over time Idealized to represent 5 stages Forest transition curve
  • 4. Purpose of Sentinel LandscapesTo measure changes and understand long-term trends insocio-economic and biophysical variables across the„forest transition curve‟ globally across comparative sites. Miombo woodland, Mozambique (J. Loo)
  • 5. Objectives1. Cross-regional comparison2. Integration of biophysical & socialdata3. Long-term presence (at least 10years)4. Co-location of research activities(share resources)• Between Themes• With partners• With other CRPs
  • 6. Challenges Selection of a set of comparable landscapes for cross- regional comparisons Integrating biophysical & socioeconomic data Building/integrating data sets Integrating action research with long term monitoring Ensuring/funding long-term presence Parkia fruits, Burkina Faso (B. Vinceti)
  • 7. Opportunities for Bioversityin Sentinel Landscapes• Monitoring the status and trends of FGR• Monitoring impact of interventions• Developing long-term relationships withlocal Universities for capacity developmentoutcomes• Potential for long-term research (ieprovenance or common garden experimentsacross gradients)However, funding for research within SLs isnot provided by the SL budget (except for Mahogany tree, Maya Forest (J. Loo)predefined monitoring)
  • 8. The Process of SelectingSentinel Landscapes 1. Criteria (15): • Existing data • Scientists from >1 CRP6 components/themes •Variation along the forest transition curve •Etc. 2. Selection of a set of comparable landscapes for cross-regional comparisons •SL workshop – June 2012, Nairobi •18 proposed candidate landscapes (3 from Bioversity)
  • 9. Selected LandscapesTier 1: 6 regional landscapes (2 per region) 2 cross-regional themes: (oil palm; tropical production forests)Tier 2: 6 regional landscapes
  • 10. Tier 1 Sentinel Landscapes Latin America South East Asia1. Nicaragua Honduras (“N-H SL”) 1. Mekong (Cambodia, Lao + Maya Forest (?) PDR, Myanmar, Thailand, Vietna m, and Southwest China)2. Western Amazon (MAP) Madre de Dios and Ucayali (Peru), 2. Borneo/Sumatra/Sulawesi Acre (Brazil) and Pando (Bolivia)
  • 11. Tier 1 Sentinel Landscapes Africa Issue bound 1. South East Mali, South West 1. Tropical Production Forests Burkina Faso, Togo and Observatory Northern Ghana. (Sikasso- Bobo Dioulasso-Tamale) 2. Oil palm: Landscapes, market chains and investment flows 2. Central Africa Humid Tropics Transect (Congo Basin)Nigerien Parkland (L. Snook) Moabi tree with Baka man and Moabi log, Cameroon (L. Snook)
  • 12. 6 Tier 1 Regional Sentinel Landscapes Boundaries to be decided
  • 13. Tier 2 Sentinel LandscapesLatin America1. Eastern AmazonAsia1. Western Ghats2. Central AsiaAfrica1. Miombo Woodland2. AfromontaneIssue bound1. Mangroves? Miombo woodland, Mozambique (L Snook)
  • 14. Bioversity Contributions Judy Loo member of Sentinel Landscapes Methods group; Laura Snook as Theme 2 Coordinator Bioversity contributions to diversity monitoring: • 5% holdback proposal led by Judy Loo to develop and test indicators of genetic diversity of trees that are informative, practical, understandable for monitoring trends •FGR programe collecting data on tree species in Sentinel Landscapes •Barbara Vinceti is focal point for biodiversity monitoring in West African landscape •Marlene Elias is designing questions for baseline data collection on genderBarbara Vinceti, Burkina Faso
  • 15. Bioversity Staff in Sentinel Landscape Development • Barbara Vinceti in Western Africa • Julius Tieguhong and Paulus Maukonen in Congo Basin • Riina Jalonen in Sumatra/Borneo, Tropical Production Forest Observatory and Mekong • Evert Thomas in the Tropical Production Forest Observatory and Western Amazon • Laura Snook in Mesoamerican (Nicaragua- Honduras) Sentinel Landscape • Judy Loo leading Central Asia Tier II proposal development • Bhuwon Sthapit linked with Western Ghats Tier II proposalAbove, Paulus Maukonen, Cameroon;
  • 16. Bioversity in research projects associated withSentinel LandscapesLed by Bioversity: •Forestry to enhance livelihoods and sustain forests in Mesoamerica (Maya forest linkages with Nicaragua-Honduras SL) •Threats to priority food tree species in Burkina Faso: drivers of resource losses and mitigation measures (with CIFOR & ICRAF; West African SL) •Beyond Timber: Reconciling the needs of the Logging Industry with those of forest-dependent people (with CIFOR; Congo Basin SL)Led by ICRAF: •Ecosystem Services Cooperation: Across sentinel landscapes, the science of ecoagriculture and national green accounting (Fabrice DeClerk) Above, logs in Cameroon (J. Tieguhong)
