Assessing the potential for multiple incentive mechanisms for ecosystem services provision to support poor farmer livelihoods

Assessing the potential for multiple incentive mechanisms for ecosystem services provision to support poor farmer livelihoods

2016-12-15

During 2016 Bioversity International has been exploring the potential impact on farmer livelihoods of incentive mechanisms for individual components (i.e. crop, livestock and forest genetic resources) of agricultural biodiversity, as well as other natural resources (e.g. soil and water), and the potential to overcome fragmented institutional landscapes so as to be able to improve such impacts by facilitating the possibility for farmers to simultaneously benefit from multiple incentive schemes. Such work has been carried out with support from the FAO's Incentives for Ecosystem Services Programme (Land and Water Division) and in collaboration with national partners in Peru (Ministry of Environment and Puno Regional Government) and Mexico (CONABIO). Findings, along with the tools developed for the realization of this project, will be presented with a view to informing decision-makers involved with national biodiversity strategic action plan development and supporting broader uptake of such work in 2017 in Peru, Mexico and beyond.
