African Ecological Futures: 2015

This report is based on this premise that African ecological futures can be fundamentally altered by economic and development decisions made today. In order to better understand what these futures might be and how to manage their impacts, the report investigates key forces shaping Africa’s today and tomorrow and draws a picture of how they come together across plausible scenarios to influence ecological futures. The report explores guiding principles for decisions and particular interventions by decision makers that may create the opportunity for more robust and resilient development.

Biodiversity and Development Co-operation

This paper considers how development co-operation is addressing the twin objectives of biodiversity conservation and sustainable use on the one hand, and development and poverty reduction on the other. The paper showcases examples of how development co-operation is supporting conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity and ecosystem services. It also identifies areas where more research is needed, such as sharing experience with the tools and good practices available for successful mainstreaming, and developing indicators to improve monitoring and evaluation to boost understanding of the effectiveness of biodiversity-related development interventions and of the relative performance of different mainstreaming approaches.

Public Incentives Harmful to Biodiversity

The impact of public subsidies on the environment has been drawing increasing attention over the last few decades, in particular within the OECD and the EU. In France, the “Loi Grenelle I (Environmental Act of August 2009) explicitly provides that "the State, on the basis of on an audit, will review tax measures that are harmful to biodiversity and will propose new tools to allow a gradual transition towards a tax regime that will be more adapted to new environmental challenges”. The report presents an identification of a number of subsidies, an assessment of those that are harmful to biodiversity and analysis of those measures in need of reform. It reaches pragmatic recommendations which, if applied, would reduce harm to biodiversity.

Shortfalls and Solutions for Meeting National and Global Conservation Area Targets

Governments have committed to conserving 17% of terrestrial and 10% of marine environments globally, especially “areas of particular importance for biodiversity” through “ecologically representative” Protected Area (PA) systems or other “area-based conservation measures”, while individual countries have committed to conserve 3–50% of their land area. The study estimates that PAs currently cover 14.6% of terrestrial and 2.8% of marine extent, but the majority of PAs have inadequate coverage. it would require nearly doubling to achieve, costefficiently, coverage targets for all countries, ecoregions, important sites, and species. Greater focus is therefore needed on alternative approaches, including community- and privately managed sites and other effective area-based conservation measures.

Linking Conservation, Equity and Poverty Alleviation

This research sought to understand who continues to use Bwindi’s resources illegally and why, despite ICD. They found that local feelings of injustice over national park conservation were as important a driver as rural poverty, and the more involved in decision-making people felt, the more benefit from an ICD intervention they reported. Their findings support current developments at the international level that focus on equitable management of protected areas not only as a moral obligation, but also as a necessity if conservation efforts are to be effective and sustainable.
