the partner(s) should work on :
Keywords : payments for environmental services payments for ecosystems services
Project description : The Forest Symbiosis Project works with 16 researchers from 6 diferent states in Brazil and is searching for other 2 partners to expand the studies with environement and climate economics, specially financial instruments and Market based instruments to linking biodiversity and economic benefits, establishing mechanisms for Payments for Environmental Services (MPES) and Payments for Ecosystems Services (MEcoS), considering climate policy governance and institutional structures.

The Forest Symbiosis Project proposes the use of two scientific approaches. The first proposes the use of a bottom-up view of a) the current and historical forestry production (timber and non-timber), and b) economic information and perspectives. The second approach proposes top down view by aligning the challenges of forest biodiversity management into the economic and public policy context, as well as by understanding the establishment and the relationships between biodiversity and MPES and MEcoS.

Target 1. Structure the data requirements for the project, set the platform for analysis, and develop the benchmark of information, for the Rio Madeira (river) basin, in the states of Acre, Amazonas and Rondonia.

Target 2. Identify the nexus between biodiversity, ecosystem services, human development and climate change in the Madeira River Basin.

Target 3. Propose the instruments (MPES and MPEcoS), requisites and agenda necessary for the sustainable regional human development.
Networking opportunities : Just by webconference
