Didactic tools for the participatory design of effective, efficient and equitable policies to reduce deforestation and rural poverty in Bolivia.

The international mechanism of compensation for Reduced Emissions from Deforestation and forest Degradation (REDD+) is currently in the process of design and negotiation. There is an urgent need for cuantitative information and tools that can help guide the process toward a mechanism that is both fair and effective and which will receive sufficient funding to really make a difference for the forests, for the climate and for the forest communities. The present project, financed mainly by the British ESPA program, contributes tools and analysis for the case of Bolivia.

Scientific Tools

OSIRIS-Bolivia and CISS-Bolivia

Logo OSIRISWould REDD work in Bolivia? The two Excel-based tools OSIRIS-Bolivia (Open Source Impacts of REDD Incentives Spreadsheet for Bolivia) and CISS-Bolivia (Conservation Incentives Spread Sheet for Bolivia) allow detailed simulation of the socio-economic and environmental impacts of different incentives to reduce deforestation in Bolivia.

Educational tools

SimPachamamaCoverEnS

SimPachamama is an Agent Based simulation tool, which mimics the behavior of a small community located at the agricultural frontier. The user takes on the role of the mayor of the community, and the objective is to implement policies so as to improve human well-being as much as possible without destroying the environment.

The tool is intended to be used in training and consultation workshops about policies to reduce deforestation. The tool is available in both Spanish and English versions from the SimPachamama web-site (www.inesad.edu.bo/simpachamama).
