ASB Partnership for the Tropical Forest Margins: Science Week Update

  1. 1. ASB Partnership for the Tropical Forest Margins: Science Week Update<br />Global Coordination Office <br />For <br />ASB Global<br />September 2011, Nairobi<br />
  2. 2. Goal and Outputs<br />“Raise productivity and income of rural households living in the tropical forest margins without increasing deforestation or undermining essential environmental services.”<br />ASB1. Site-specific results and cross-regional syntheses of tradeoffs at the tropical forest margins and options for optimizing those tradeoffs. <br />ASB2. Results on tradeoffs and policy options are disseminated to national, regional and international stakeholders and policy fora, with particular emphasis on policy processes identified as having greatest potential for advancing the ASB goal. <br />ASB3. An efficient, productive and member-owned research network at the national, regional and international scales.<br />
  3. 3. ASB in Time<br />NSS recogni-zed as key INRM concept in PNAS paper 2011<br />Fairness vs efficiency issue gets wider recognition in REDD debate<br />But ‘sparing’ versus ‘sharing’ debate continues…<br />
  4. 4. CORE ASB PARTNERS<br />
  5. 5. Dependent on forest definition<br />Explicitly cross-sectoral<br />REDD+ REALU Land Based NAMA<br />Independent of forest definition<br />REDD<br />Conservation<br />Forest management<br />Enhancement of forest carbon stocks<br />Pedroni, 2007<br />
  6. 6. Project Portfolio 2010/2011<br />Contributing to / Partnering in CRP 6.3, 6.4 and CRP 7 (CCAFs). Eventually 1.2 THROUGH ICRAF <br />
  7. 7. Reducing Emissions from All Land Use – REALU (June 2009 to Present)<br /> <br /><ul><li>Contributing to a number of Issues t in the International REDD / climate debate including:
  8. 8. Landscape approaches,
  9. 9. Forest definition
  10. 10. Emissions Embedded in Trade
  11. 11. Relevance of emissions / emission reductions “outside forest” etc
  12. 12. High Carbon Stocks Rural Development Pathways
  13. 13. Agricultural drivers of deforestation

  23. 23. Three Regional Workshops (co-organized with World Bank, FCPF & UN-REDD) Africa, Asia and LA<br />Five National level trainings (Indonesia, Vietnam, Cameroon, Peru, Panama)<br />Over 250 Persons trained world-wide<br />ASB Backstopping UN-REDD Opcost analysis in Panama (ongoing)<br />Science Policy / Capacity Impact (2010-2011)<br />
  24. 24. Future Focus 1:Swiddens in Poverty Alleviation, Climate and Ecosystem Services- SPACES<br />Global / Regional analysis of Swidden Change<br />Swidden and REDD+ (And REALU & NAMA)<br />Shifting Cultivation and poverty reduction and Environmental services (Modelling)<br />Promoting Innovation and alternatives (10 Landscapes)<br />Specific Congo Basin Requests on strategies for shifting cultivation within REDD- e.g DRC<br />
  25. 25. Future Focus 2:Linking Mitigation and Adaptation (MITI-ADAPT GLOBAL)<br />Land use practices; Policies; Financing; & science-policy interface<br />
