Instruments for Implementing Forest Vocation Land Policy
The operation will finance the one-time identification of FVL in selected municipalities and the development of procedures for periodic monitoring of FVL cover, for forest and non-forest policy conflict analyses; the reengineering of enforcement procedures and protocols; the design of rules' dissemination activities and an assistance strategy to support policy compliance. Disseminate operational instruments developed and pilot results through an Internet site. The objectives of the operation are to develop operational instruments for the implementation of the forest policy based on a forest vocation land (FVL) strategy, assist the GOPN to improve forest related environmental services production, and increase the feasibility of forest based businesses in the country

Dependencia fiscal de los recursos naturales a nivel subnacional en la Región Andina: desafíos y reformas
Uno de los mayores desafíos que enfrenta la humanidad es hacer que el planeta sea habitable para las próximas generaciones. Para ello, se requiere el rápido paso hacia economías descarbonizadas y que minimicen el uso de los recursos naturales no renovables. Este paso es muy costoso, ya que requiere adaptar el consumo y la producción a una nueva fuente energética, generando múltiples impactos, entre los que se destacan los impactos redistributivos en distintas dimensiones (entre sectores sociales, regiones y generaciones). En los países andinos, estos desafíos adquieren complejidades especiales, relacionados con su particular estructura productiva, económica y social. Por un lado, es necesario considerar el impacto que tendría el necesario proceso de descarbonización de las economías sobre los sectores extractivos asociados al petróleo, el gas y el carbón mineral. Por otro lado, las economías andinas también son productoras de varios de los minerales usados en tecnologías de generación de energía más limpias o verdes. De hecho, los gobiernos centrales y subnacionales son dependientes de la renta generada tanto por el sector extractivo (minería e hidrocarburos). Teniendo en cuenta que la descarbonización y la transición energética introducirán costos socioeconómicos-fiscales relevantes y considerando la alta desigualdad preexistente en los países andinos, debe prestarse particular atención a los impactos distributivos, tanto personales como regionales. El presente trabajo aborda los desafíos actuales que enfrentan los gobiernos locales en cuanto a los ingresos por renta extractiva, en particular los sistemas de regalía. También se dan recomendaciones de política para enfrentar el fenómeno de activos varados derivado de la pérdida de la renta petrolera y cómo mejorar los sistemas de regalías para la industria extractiva.

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.

Nature-based Solutions in Latin America and the Caribbean: Financing Mechanisms for Regional Replication
Innovative financing models are emerging globally to advance nature-based solutions (NBS) that can cost-effectively enhance infrastructure performance, meet Sustainable Development Goals, and mitigate the negative impacts of climate change. Despite the potential for NBS to generate attractive returns and provide significant cost-savings, these financing models remain underutilized. Consequently, NBS are not achieving their full potential and a tranche of pent up green capital is sidelined. This report highlights five proven NBS financing strategies that leverage private finance: green bonds, blended market-rate and concessional loans, land-based financing strategies, insurance policies, and endowments. This report also outlines current barriers to the successful scaling of these financing strategies in Latin America and the Caribbean and identifies the approaches and enabling conditions needed to overcome them.

Payment for Ecosystem Services in Costa Rica: Evaluation of a Country-wide Program
Several countries have implemented payment-for-ecosystem-services (PES) programs, buoyed by the promise of these programs as a win-win strategy that would allow both the conservation of natural resources, and the reduction of poverty for rural households and communities. Our study evaluates the effect on deforestation of Costa Rica's PES program, one of the oldest country-wide programs in the world. Costa Rica approved the 1996 Forest Law (Law No. 7575), creating a PES program that compensates landowners for forest conservation. We estimate these effects using an event study design with staggered entry into treatment. Our results show a statistically significant effect for the first year with a decrease in deforestation of 0.21 ha, but not for the following years. Given that the baseline level of deforestation in our sample is low, the magnitude of the effect is large. When compared to the pre-2016 average level of within farm deforestation, our estimated effect would imply a 100% reduction in deforestation for the first year after enrollment. Given the program pays the participants for a 5-year period, and that the effect is significant only during the first year, it may be beneficial for the program to reduce its length and implement required simplified annual contract renewals or other behavioral interventions to reduce noncompliance in subsequent years.

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.
