Models for Sustainable Indigenous Enterprise on Communal Forest Lands Andes-Amaz
The objective of this project is to provide Amazonian indigenous communities in southern Peru with the tools to sustainably interact with the cash economy while conserving the forests that provide their livelihood and ecosystem services, while also allowing them to maintain their cultural traditions. Specifically, the project will seek to: i) improve territorial planning and management on 105,000 ha of communally owned and managed forest lands; ii) identify and implement a productive model linked to sustainable use of natural resources, including harvest of timber and non-timber forest products, and maintenance of cultural traditions in 8 indigenous communities, iii) build technical, organizational and governance capacity among beneficiary communities to successfully manage indigenous enterprises, and iv) link indigenous enterprises to markets.

Amazonian Forest: The Products of Agroecological Systems: Considerations about the Natural Forest and Economic Exploitation for its Conservation and How to Develop Sustainable Agroforestry Systems that Induce the Reduction of Deforestation
This study demonstrates that the economic activity of the Amazon's natural forest has great potential yet to be developed when considering Non-Timber Forest Products (NTFPs) and those coming from agro-ecosystems (SAFs). Preliminary financial analyzes, in systems that are still incipient, point to a great potential for profitability of these alternative systems compared to traditional activities such as soybean and livestock farming, with the advantage of being conducted without degradation and deforestation, allowing the continuation with the support of the Amazonian ecological system. More research is needed to scale successful cases and more “dialogue” between the models of modern agriculture and the traditional knowledge to reach an integrated natural forest management system.

Economia do Comportamento para Melhores Políticas Públicas
Prazo de inscrição: 27 de Agosto, 2024Nos últimos anos, cada vez mais governos e formuladores de políticas têm percebido que, para serem verdadeiramente bem-sucedidas, as políticas públicas devem considerar a forma como os indivíduos se comportam e tomam decisões. Com essa premissa, este curso se propõe a ensinar os conceitos fundamentais da economia do comportamento e como estes diferem da visão do modelo econômico tradicional. O curso também introduz ferramentas que podem ajudar a promover a tomada de melhores decisões e apresenta casos reais de intervenções em que esses “empurrões” foram usados para aprimorar as políticas públicas em países da América Latina e de outras partes do mundo.

Cinco formas de integrar la identidad indígena a proyectos de desarrollo
“De allí” – eso quiere decir la primera parte de la palabra indígena, “inde”. El sufijo, “genus”, significa “nacido” u “originario”.

Credence Attributes and Opportunities: Yerba Mate in Paraguay
The value of yerba mate (Ilex paraguariensis) exports from Paraguay has recently increased dramatically. Much of this growth is due to positioning of the good within the universe of products where consumption growth is driven by perceptions of sustainable production and health benefits to consumers--that is, credence attributes creating a new dimension of demand. Credence claims for yerba mate's benefits to indigenous producing communities, environmental sustainability under certain production processes, healthful alternatives to energy drinks, are now widely known, but the growth of this awareness came via a new entrepreneurial strategy of a single firm. This case study explores the determinants of growth of credence-based exports of yerba mate from Paraguay, potential for increased growth, and the fragility of the credence-based model.

Options to Achieve Carbon Neutrality in Chile: An Assessment Under Uncertainty
Chile aims to reach carbon neutrality. Its Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) commits the country to reach net-zero emissions of greenhouse gases by 2050 and sets targets for emissions to be reduced progressively over time. To comply with the goals of the NDC, line ministries have considered a set of sectoral transformations, such as closing coal-fired power plants, promoting electric mobility, and increasing forest captures which, taken together, could bring emissions down to zero. This study evaluates how these sectoral transformations would fare under a wide range of economic, environmental, and technological uncertainties. It identifies the vulnerabilities of the strategy, that is, under what conditions sectoral transformations are insufficient to achieve net-zero emissions. It then quantifies options for making sectoral plans to deliver the NDC more robust, that is to reduce the likelihood of not achieving carbon neutrality. Additional measures discussed include speeding up retirement of coal-fired power plants, promotion of telework and non-motorized transport, reduction of beef consumption, expansion of thermal retrofitting of houses, increased afforestation, sustainable forest management, and expansion of protected areas. These measures are based on ideas proposed by sectoral experts during a participatory process. Finally, a macroeconomic evaluation finds that enhancing the set of measures put forward to comply with the NDC would result in a net gain of 0.8% of gross domestic product (GDP) by 2050, on the top of 4.4% GDP gain that the current NDC plans would bring.
