Agriculture is replacing native vegetation worldwide, at a faster rate in the last decades. Biodiversity and ecosystem services have severely been affected, thus compromising essential services for human survival, such as food production, water availability, climate regulation, fiber production, and aesthetic values. Nature-based Solutions (NbS) - which included the Payment for Ecosystem Services (PES) initiatives - are alternatives to reverse the negative effects of habitat destruction. Thus, establishing efficient monitoring metrics to assess the effectiveness of PES programs and other public policy initiatives is essential to ensure beneficial results and the engagement of farmers in these programs for a long time. In this proposal we will quantify new metrics and use previous results of the PES programs already implemented at PSRB in the portion of São Paulo state to define a set of metrics to assess the benefits of these programs in the environmental, and socioeconomic context.
Deforestation and degradation of aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems in the Amazon has advanced at high rates due to the implementation of inadequate land use models. Thus, several initiatives have been developed with the aim of preserving and conserving the Amazon Forest, valuing and promoting the livelihood of Amazonian populations in order to keep the forest standing and, more recently, forest recovery initiatives have also been implemented. Although many of these initiatives have been successful, they lack systematic programs to evaluate and monitor their results over time. Our main motivation is to provide, in a participatory way, the evaluation and monitoring of the effectiveness of alternative initiatives to deforestation in the southwest of the Brazilian Amazon through the use of environmental and socioeconomic indicators.
