Resultado do Prêmio Jorg Zimmermann da Sociobiodiversidade

 

A Comissão de Seleção da primeira edição do Prêmio Jorg Zimmermann da Sociobiodiversidade escolheu as duas iniciativas vencedoras. O edital recebeu 34 candidaturas, sendo 2 inelegíveis por ter atuação fora dos biomas contemplados ou por ser proposta por instituição pública.

A seleção de duas propostas foi uma tarefa difícil devido à qualidade e relevância de muitas candidaturas alinhadas com os critérios do edital. A comissão optou por priorizar duas iniciativas ainda em consolidação, para as quais o prêmio contribuirá com o fortalecimento e visibilidade.

Para ampliar o impacto do Prêmio e reconhecer  outras iniciativas relevantes, a comissão de seleção, com apoio do ISPN, optou por premiar mais três iniciativas com a menção honrosa, que receberão R$ 3 mil cada uma.

Parabéns a todos os candidatos por fazerem a diferença e ajudarem a construir um Brasil mais justo e sustentável!

SAVE OUR SAVANNAS – SOS!

O projeto SALVE NOSSAS SAVANAS – SOS! busca evitar uma catastrofe ecológica que afetaria a metade da América do Sul. As savanas são mal-compreendidas, desprezadas e ameaçadas. Um ponto de inflexão sem retorno se aproxima. Podemos fazer contribuições sustentáveis ??em grande escala para reverter a destruição e resolver problemas ambientais, sociais e econômicos interligados e de longo alcance que envolvem segurança hídrica, energética e alimentar, biodiversidade, clima, pobreza e êxodo rural. A solução seria uma combinação entre paisagens sócio-ecológicas utilizadas por comunidades rurais resilientes na metade do Cerrado remanescente e agricultura mais produtiva e sustentável em larga escala na metade já desmatada. A mudança neste sentido já começou, mas são necessários fortes novos estímulos. A equipe do ISPN conta com conhecimento técnico, contato com a base em todo o Cerrado e vasta experiência no governo, agências internacionais, universidades e sociedade civil. Está na hora de aprender lições, divulgar o que realmente funciona e influenciar políticas públicas e práticas privadas. Este salto poderá gerar benefícios e desbloquear novos recursos no Brasil e em países em desenvolvimento ao redor do mundo.

Save our Savannas – SOS!

 

The SAVE OUR SAVANNAS – SOS! project seeks to avoid a potentially catastrophic ecological tipping point affecting half of South America. Savannas are misunderstood, neglected, and threatened. A threshold is near. We can make large-scale sustainable contributions to reversing their destruction and solving interconnected and far-reaching environmental, social, and economic problems involving water, energy, biodiversity, climate, poverty, food security, and out-migration. The solution is combining socio-ecological landscapes used by resilient rural communities with more productive and sustainable large-scale agriculture in the half already cleared. Some change has begun, but strong new stimuli are needed. ISPN’s team has technical expertise, grassroots contact all over Brazil’s Cerrado, and extensive experience in government, international agencies, academia, and civil society. The time is ripe to learn lessons, disseminate what really works, and influence public policies and private practices. This scaling-up will unlock new resources in Brazil and developing countries around the world.

Annex 5 – SOS Project Initiatives

This annex lists the five proposed SOS initiatives and their respective activities grouped in broad topics of equal importance to promote game-changing systemic change in order to solve a critical but largely hidden problem and influence the use of billions of dollars in the future: 1) Ecology; 2) Economy; 3) Society; 4) Policy; and 5) Knowledge. The proposed distribution of grant funds among the topics is also indicated.

 

1          ECOLOGY

 1.1       HYDROS – Hydrological Cycles and Land/Water Use

  • “South American Rivers in the Sky” (SOARS): research on the role of savannas and forests in transmission of inter-regional and international flows of atmospheric moisture from the Atlantic and the Amazon and the effects of clearing on dryness downwind and seasonality of streamflow downstream in half the continent.
  • Research on effects of land use (natural and planted pasture, rainfed crops, irrigation, tree plantations, land-sharing, land-sparing) on local availability of water.
  • Identification and diffusion of feasible and healthy forms of water security by harvesting, storing, and recycling rain, surface, and underground water for human consumption, agricultural production, fish farming and wildlife welfare during dry seasons and droughts, mitigating water stress without creating breeding places for mosquitos.

1.2       BIOS – Biodiversity and Sustainability

  • Promotion of traditional and innovative ways to achieve conservation and management of biodiversity and maintenance of ecosystem functions through sustainable use of biodiversity at the landscape scale.
  • Design and promotion of new alternatives for eco-social protected areas that do not require expropriation of land, including forest law set-asides, indigenous and Afro-descendant (quilombola) lands, environmental protection areas (APAs), public forests, Biosphere Reserves, Natural Parks, private reserves, and Indigenous and Community Conserved Areas (ICCAs).
  • Analysis of ecological functions and impacts of native, adapted, and exotic species of flora and fauna in old and novel Cerrado ecosystems, including impacts on fire management.
  • Alternatives for mitigation and adaptation to climate change (both temperature and precipitation) as related to natural vegetation, clearing, burning, rehabilitation, and land use for agriculture, livestock, tree plantations, and reservoirs.
  • Control of old and emerging mosquito-borne tropical diseases through environmental management, house location and structure, land use, personal protection, and management of breeding places.

1.3       CARBOS – Carbon Sequestration

  • Resilient landscapes with quantification of underground carbon and tCO2e in natural and rehabilitated Cerrado landscapes, including deep roots and soil carbon, in order to justify new policies and financial support.
  • Carbon farming with use of biochar by smallholders to increase soil fertility and crop productivity, reduce the need for new clearing, and provide permanent sequestration of carbon.
  • Analysis of impacts of burning and new methods to manage fire and prevent wildfire, thus avoiding loss of rich and unique biodiversity, reducing runoff, and promoting carbon sequestration through increased woody biomass.

 

2          ECONOMY

 2.1       SOPRO – Socio-Productive Inclusion

  • Scaling-up of initiatives of the Critical Ecosystem Partnership Fund (CEPF), CASA Socio-environmental Fund, Semi-Arid Network (ASA), Bank of Brazil Foundation (FBB), Forest Investment Program (DGM-FIP), and Drylands Champions (Mandacaru), among others that promote socio-productive inclusion and replication, as well as dissemination of information about alternative sources of funding.
  • Implementation of the Satoyama socio-ecological landscape approach initiated by the Ministry of Environment of Japan, the United Nations University (UNU), and UNESCO, disseminating and replicating ISPN’s pilot experience in the Upper Jequitinhonha Valley in northern Minas Gerais.

2.2       SUBS – Sustainable Use of Biodiversity by Smallholders

  • Support for collection, processing, and marketing of products of sustainable use of biodiversity (fruits, nuts, flowers, medicinal plants, honey, handicrafts, etc.) carried out by local communities and networks, complementary to funding by GEF-UNDP-SGP, Amazon Fund, Vale Corporation etc.
  • Proposals for adjustments in regulatory frameworks and their application in order to reduce bureaucratic barriers (sanitary, environmental, tax, labor, social security, etc.) that block sustainable use of biodiversity and prevent income generation from sale of non-timber forest products.
  • Appropriate machinery, energy sources, means of transportation, information and communications technology, and digital inclusion for smallholders in remote areas, with special attention to needs of women, children, youth, the elderly and disabled persons.
  • Officially recognized agreements between landowners or government and local communities regarding access to natural resources on private and public property and land considered as commons.
  • Improved processing and formal and informal marketing of products of sustainable use of biodiversity through organization of small-scale agroindustries, street fairs, booths at municipal markets, temporary outdoor stands, retailers, new businesses, and gastronomy.

2.3       SAGRI – Sustainable Medium-/Large-scale Agriculture

  • Monitoring and dialog about private-sector proposals and practices regarding reduction of deforestation and other forms of destruction of savanna ecosystems in commodity supply chains as well as impacts on global food prices.
  • Face-to-face and on-line training and exchange among new generations of farmers and ranchers about effective, feasible, and affordable sustainable agricultural production and rehabilitation technologies such as integrated crop-livestock-forestry (ILPF) systems, zero tillage, conservation agriculture, agroforestry, and agro-ecology so as to provide habitat and connectivity, lower temperatures, reduce runoff, and increase evapotranspiration.
  • Benchmarking for medium/large farmers/ranchers as a self-analysis management tool that identifies areas in need of outside consulting.
  • Quantification of the area of land with natural vegetation spared or shared by new farming/ranching practices in order to justify access to markets, credit, premiums, tax credits, and subsidies.
  • Proposals for tropical timber futures to provide incentives for and investment in planting of trees on degraded land.

 

3          SOCIETY

3.1       DECISO – Development of Civil Society Capacity

  • Institutional capacity development for organizations that defend savannas and traditional, indigenous, and other communities at local, regional, and national levels and need to improve capacity and comply with government regulations.
  • Institutional support for civil society networks as well as vertical support arrangements for vertical technical and financial cooperation among local and regional civil society organizations.
  • Training for individual mid-career leaders to strengthen local organizations and participate effectively in social and environmental movements and participatory councils and commissions.
  • Dissemination of information and continuous exchange and networking among leaders and civil society representatives who defend eco-social causes at various levels.

3.2       GENES – Gender, Generation, Race, and Ethnicity

  • Practical solutions for women and girls in interior regions, who are often responsible for sustainable use of biodiversity, improving gender equity with regard to security, health, work, income, and access to land and resources.
  • Practical solutions for all generations in rural areas, including children, youth, elderly, and disabled, as well as forms of rural-urban mobility, connectivity, and rurban multi-residence, reducing need to migrate to cities or other countries.
  • Appropriate livelihood strategies for indigenous, Afro-Brazilian and other racial/ethnic minorities both inside and outside official indigenous and quilombola

 

4          POLICY

 4.1       ESGOV – Eco-Social Governance

  • Identification, analysis, and dissemination of successful experiences in legislation, regulations, policies, programs, and projects that could be replicated in other agencies, states, and municipalities.
  • Support to municipal, state, and federal legislators, authorities, and staff for design and exchange of proposals for appropriate eco-social regulation, creating new alternatives and reducing barriers to sustainable livelihoods.
  • Support to the Cerrado sub-group of the association of state environmental secretariats in their national association (ABEMA) to develop and exchange innovative approaches to dealing with Cerrado problems.
  • Support for the creation and functioning of municipal environmental secretariats all over the Cerrado through their national association of municipal environmental agencies (ANAMMA) and for municipal governments that adopt innovative approaches including pioneer inter-municipal consortia for regional cooperation on environmental management.

4.2       SULAN – Sustainable Landscapes

  • Eco-Social Community Conserved Areas on private or government land with official recognition of their ecological and social benefits and incentives for wider replication.
