  • 1. World Water Day: Water Cooperation Multidisciplinary Research Week 2013‘Ecosystem Services Approach and Mainstreaming Biodiversity - Experiences of GIZ’, by Dr Kirsten Probst, German Development Agency,( GIZ), Member of the ASSETS advisory board.
  • 2. Ecosystem Services Approachand Mainstreaming Biodiversity – Experiences of GIZEcosystem services for poverty alleviation on World Water Day 2013, 22nd March University of Southhampton Dr. Kirsten Probst Division 4700 Environment and Climate Change Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH Page 2
  • 3. Our profileA German federal enterprise• Owned by the Federal Republic of Germany• Organised as a private-sector entity• Supports the objectives of the German GovernmentWe manage change.For sustainable development worldwide.• With advisory and practical services• Across a wide range of sectors• For customised, innovative solutions• On behalf of clients inside Germany and around the world22.03.2013 ES Approach and Mainstreaming Biodiversity – Experiences of GIZ Page 3
  • 4. GIZ - Facts and figures• Operations in Germany and in over 130 countries around the world• Around 17,000 employees• Business volume of some 2 billion euros in 2011• Commissioned by public and private-sector bodies inside and outside Germany• Main commissioning party: the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development22.03.2013 ES Approach and Mainstreaming Biodiversity – Experiences of GIZ Page 4
  • 5. Biodiversity and Forests – A Priority Area for GermanDevelopment Cooperation:  Biological diversity (and esp. forests) play a significant role in German Development Policy and Cooperation => its own priority area and cross-cutting theme  Strong political commitment to conserve and sustainably manage biodiversity, forests and ecosystem services  Increased funding: 219 Mio. Euros (2008), 300 Mio. Euros (2010), app. 448 Mio. Euros (2012)  German Government (BMZ & BMU) to invest 500 Mio. Euros annually starting 2013 The more biodiversity there is – the more resilient is our own survival system” (Quoted after German Chanc. Angela Merkel, Int. Year of Biodiversity 2010)22.03.2013 ES Approach and Mainstreaming Biodiversity – Experiences of GIZ Page 5
  • 6. Scope of actionSustainable implementation on all political levels Concept of multilevel interventions: providing concrete experiences on the local and national level and feedback into national policy and international processes International level Support to the further development of the CBD and its instrumentsand support to the partner countries in the international negotiations National level Ministries in Germany and Partner Countries: Policy advice regarding the implementation of the Strategic Plan 2011-2020 of the CBD Local level Support to implementation of small scale projects 22.03.2013 ES Approach and Mainstreaming Biodiversity – Experiences of GIZ Page 6

  • 8. Our portfolio has grown steadily, responding to the extended scope and the guiding principles of the CBD Strategic Plan 2011 – 2020 and its 20 Aichi-targets Our goal • Mainstreaming of biodiversity and ecosystem services into German Development Cooperation • Mainstreaming of biodiversity and ecosystem services into development planning processes in partner countries.22.03.2013 ES Approach and Mainstreaming Biodiversity – Experiences of GIZ 8 Page 8
  • 9. Example 1: Integrating Ecosystem Servicesinto Development Planning (IES) Page 9
  • 10. Integrating Ecosystem Services (IES) into Development Planning What is it? IES is a stepwise approach for systematically assessing, valuating and integrating ecosystem services into development planning. What is the purpose? IES aims to assist in recognizing the links between nature and development. It considers the environmental and economic trade-offs associated with development measures and helps to systematically incorporate ecosystem service-related opportunities and risks into the planning and implementation of strategies. Who can use it? IES is designed to support advisors, project staff and development planners in partner countries to integrate ecosystem services into the design and review of development plans, sector-specific and spatial planning, environmental and climate assessments, as well as into project development and proposal formulation. 22.03.2013 ES Approach and Mainstreaming Biodiversity – Experiences of GIZ Page 10
  • 11. • Defining the scope of assessment and setting Step 1 the stage How does the development plan depend and impact on ecosystem services? • Screening and prioritizing ecosystem services Step 2 • Identifying ecosystem service conditions, trends What risks and Step 3 and trade-offs opportunities do ecosystem services pose to the development • Appraising the institutional and cultural plan? Step 4 framework • Preparing better decision-making Step 5 Which policy measures can help to avoid these costs and capture these benefits? • Implementing change Step 622.03.2013 ES Approach and Mainstreaming Biodiversity – Experiences of GIZ Page 11

  • 14. IES in Practice: TEEB Study to inform Development Planningand Public Investment in the Piura Region (Peru)Outcomes at National level, e.g.: TOR were picked up by Ministry of Environment to initiate similar studies in other regions Ministry of Finance is organizing Information meetings for technical staff on ESOutcomes at Regional level: Local government applying for public funding for capacity development in ES valuation in diff. sectors Conservation of ecosystems to secure water provising services for regional capital city as priority measureNext Steps: Broad communication of results to different policy sectors & stakeholder PDRS/GIZ: support to Min. of Environment in in up-scaling to other regions 22.03.2013 ES Approach and Mainstreaming Biodiversity – Experiences of GIZ Page 14

  • 17.  What information do policy-makers really need about ecosystem services in order to make more effective and ecologically-sustainable development and allocation decisions in future? Which methods and approaches are best suited to which problem and context? Which methods are sufficiently robust and replicable and provide results that are appropriate for M&E? Who should be involved in the planning and implementation of the studies? What is the best way of processing and representing the results so that they are intelligible to different target groups and decision-makers?22.03.2013 ES ES Approach and Mainstreaming Biodiversity – 17 Approach and Mainstreaming Biodiversity – Experiences of GIZ Page 17

Services provided by projectExchange on national level Global exchange Practical Capacity Reviewr of development and experiences/ compendium of knowledge pilot exchange by application of methodoloies exsting networks ES analyses ? …in cooperation with bilateral GIZ-projects and partner institutions Page 18
  • 19. Potential areas of mutual interest:• Cases where ES studies and analyses were successfully integrated into political decision-making processes and the design of policy instruments (e.g. in agriculture, food security, rural development, climate change adaption)• Assessment of practicability of different methods and tools for ES analysis in the context of public management and development planning• Improved dialogue between research and practice22.03.2013 ES Approach and Mainstreaming Biodiversity – Experiences of GIZ Page 19
