  2. 2. WHERE TO? PRESA AND RUPES CAN, WILL contribute to a high C stock development pathway by: <ul><li>Continuing to generate evidence to better engage multiple actors in building a shared understanding of landscape/watershed functions and in negotiating management options (in new sites, in new agro-ecological systems) </li></ul><ul><li>2. Relating to financial mechanisms at national scale </li></ul><ul><li>Examine where CES-COS-CIS apply, and under which context. </li></ul><ul><li>Examine effectiveness/viability of private sector market-driven versus fund approach to watershed PES </li></ul><ul><li>Establish the business case of whether development goals of the public sector are attainable in efficient and pro-poor way through PES </li></ul><ul><li>3. Examining aspects of scale and thresholds for ES supply*food production </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>With carbon as one of highly demanded and commoditized ES, examine level of emission reduction achieved relative to baseline as a way to repay investments, without falling in the trap of monetization and carbonization of livelihoods that carbon markets entail. </li></ul><ul><li>6. Link P/RES into food security actions for environmental co-benefits such as: Evergreen Agriculture </li></ul><ul><li>Evergreen Grasslands/Drylands </li></ul><ul><li>Millennium Development Goals </li></ul>
  4. 4. What is Evergreen Agriculture? <ul><li>A form of more intensive farming that integrates trees with annual crops, maintaining a green cover on the land throughout the year. </li></ul><ul><li>Evergreen farming systems are ‘double- story’ systems that feature both perennial and annual species (food crops and trees). </li></ul>D.P. Garrity
  5. 5. Some examples of Evergreen Agriculture <ul><li>Eastern & Southern Africa </li></ul><ul><li>Faidherbia albida in maize production systems </li></ul><ul><li>Fodder shrubs for balanced dairy nutrition (e.g., Caliandra in the East African Dairy Project) </li></ul><ul><li>Mango and other fruits intercropped in maize systems </li></ul><ul><li>Grevillia robusta intercropped in maize for timber, fodder & fuel </li></ul><ul><li>Intercropped coppicing leguminous trees in maize </li></ul><ul><li>(eg Gliricidia in Malawi) </li></ul><ul><li>Relay-cropped leguminous species managed as annual green manure (eg Tephrosia) </li></ul><ul><li>Improved fallows with leguminous species (eg Sesbania sesban ) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>[email_address] </li></ul></ul>D.P. Garrity
  6. 6. What are the linkages between Evergreen Agriculture and ES provision? <ul><li>Improved microclimate and soil water relations conveying greater adaptation to climate change </li></ul><ul><li>Dramatically increased carbon accumulation in food crop systems: 6-10 t CO2/ha/yr </li></ul><ul><li>Enhanced biodiversity in annual crop systems grown in agroforests </li></ul><ul><li>Reduced deforestation due to enhanced potential in rainfed agriculture </li></ul>D.P. Garrity
  7. 7. D.P. Garrity Crops are grown under a full canopy of trees
  8. 8. National recommendations for maize in Malawi & Zambia: Faidherbia Fertilizer Trees at 100 trees per ha D.P. Garrity
  9. 9. <ul><li>High-density Faidherbia millet systems in southern </li></ul><ul><li>Zinder, Niger, 2006. </li></ul>D.P. Garrity
  10. 10. Aerial view of a parkland dominated by Faidherbia in Niger D.P. Garrity
  11. 11. Faidherbia albida trees in rice fields Basse Casamance, Senegal D.P. Garrity
  12. 12. FINALLY, THE PRO-POOR BRANDING OF RUPES AND PRESA IN THE PES ARENA RESONATES GLOBAL, NATIONAL, SUB-NATIONAL AND LOCAL DEVELOPMENT AGENDAS THAT EMPHASIZE FOOD SECURITY AND RURAL LIVELIHOODS.
  13. 13. Join the RUPES and PRESA network as a researcher, advocate, practitioner, and as investor.
