  • How much does the KBA process cost?

    Estimatives for the Brazilian KBA

    CI-Brazil

  • Costs involvedPlanning process (data gathering, data collection)Creation of protected areasSupport of existing protected areasImplementationMaintenance (monitoring, research)

  • Costs involvedAtlantic ForestData gathering initiated in 200119 projects supported (US$ 527,000) (CBC, CEPF)Partial time of 3 employeesCerrado-PantanalData gathering initiated in 200248 projects supported (US$ 687,000) (CBC)Partial time of 3 employees (until 2004)Additional employee (from 2005)

  • Costs involvedAmazoniaData gathering initiated in 200116 projects supported (US$ 473,000) (CBC, CEPF)Partial time of 2 employeesMarine ProgramData gathering initiated on 200213 projects supported (US$ 107,000) (CBC)Partial time of 2 employees

  • SummaryUS$ 1,7 millions (partners)Average of US$ 283 k/year (all regional programs)Activities involved:Data gatheringField surveysInfra-structure for partnersGrants (research and scholarship)PublicationsUS$ 477 k (salaries)Total: US$ 2.1 millions

  • Playing with numbers (KBA costs)

  • Investments for the next 4 years(only in Brazil)US$ 17,4 millions per year268 areas per yearTotal area can be close to 16 millions hectares

  • Definition of priorities is necessaryCombination of irreplaceability and vulnerabilityConservation status is not the best surrogate for vulnerabilityEx.: same species, same conservation status, different pressures on its habitat in different regionsHuman pressure on natural ecosystem can indicate its vulnerability

  • Definition of prioritiesVulnerability:Integration of variables that represents human pressure (roads, fire, human population, population growing) attenuated by conservation opportunities (natural fragments, proximity to existing PA)Irreplaceability:Metric that combines rarity and richness (summed irreplaceability)

  • Distance from RoadsFuzzy analysis

  • Fire frequency2001 - 2004

  • Human populationInterpolation

  • Human growth rateInterpolation

  • Natural vegetation remainingMODIS 13q - 2004

  • Distance from PA (IUCN I-III)Fuzzy analysis

  • Distance from PA (IUCN IV)Fuzzy analysis

  • Distance from PA (IUCN V)Fuzzy analysis

  • Final balanceConservation effort

  • KBA Priorities

  • Priorities for Cerrado-PantanalLines shows average values for each abscissa21 sites

  • TargetsPenelope ochrogasterSporophila nigrorufaSporophila palustrisAnodorhynchus hyacinthinus

  • Preliminary delineation

  • KBA candidate

  • IssuesPrioritization is necessary The process must be oriented by efficiency (cost/benefit)Data on species biology/ecology are necessary for most of the taxaIntegration of biodiversity data and landscape is necessary. Two steps:reserve selection (KBA priorization)reserve design (KBA delineation)
