  1. 1. ASB Partnership for the Tropical Forest Margins: Science Week Update Global Coordination Office For ASB Global SEPTEMBER 2011, NAIROBI
  2. 2. Goal and Outputs <ul><li>“ Raise productivity and income of rural households living in the tropical forest margins without increasing deforestation or undermining essential environmental services.” </li></ul><ul><li>ASB1. Site-specific results and cross-regional syntheses of tradeoffs at the tropical forest margins and options for optimizing those tradeoffs. </li></ul><ul><li>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. </li></ul><ul><li>ASB3. An efficient, productive and member-owned research network at the national, regional and international scales. </li></ul>
  3. 3. ASB in Time But ‘sparing’ versus ‘sharing’ debate continues… NSS recogni-zed as key INRM concept in PNAS paper 2011 Fairness vs efficiency issue gets wider recognition in REDD debate
