  • The Guiana Shield Facility

    Tagline:

    Promoting

    conservation

    Supporting

    sustainable

    development

  • The Guiana Shield

    Size: 2.7 million km2

    Low population 8 million: rich

    cultural diversity

    Largest complex of uninterrupted,

    intact primary tropical forests

    One of the richest tropical

    wilderness areas on Earth

    Great variety of ecosystems, some

    are not found anywhere else

    High biodiversity values

    Key watershed region for the

    Amazon and Orinoco basins

    10-15% of worlds freshwater

    Significant carbon sequestration ~500 million t/year

  • Wise words

    H.E. Braulio Dias, Executive Secretary of the Convention on Biological Diversity, 2013

    .the Guiana Shield Ecoregion, the area that concentrates the largest amount of tropical forest under protected areas in the world, but one that is increasingly facing the challenges of promotion of economic development while ensuring the conservation of its natural capital and increasing the benefits for its people from its rich biodiversity.

  • Programming for conservation &

    sustainable development

    GSF as Vehicle &

    Fund

    Support national/local priorities

    Ecoregional Objectives Programmatic Implementation

  • Operating Premise of the GSF

    Provision of incentives for

    the preservation and

    conservation of the

    ecological and social values

    of the Guiana Shield

    ecoregion towards ensuring

    the long-term delivery of its

    globally important

    ecosystem services will

    contribute to poverty

    reduction and sustainable

    human development,

    especially for forest

    dependent communities

  • Biocapacity for development

  • Biocapacity in the Guiana Shield

    Brazil

    Colombia Venezuela

    Guyana (= Suriname, French Guiana)

  • Theory of change

    The GSF creates

    and sustains an

    eco-regional

    platform to

    support national

    priorities,

    address common

    threats to

    ecosystems and

    the services they

    provide, build

    partnerships to

    promote

    advocacy,

    knowledge

    building and

    transboundary

    collaboration.

  • Through implementation of valuation

    methodologies, payment for ecosystem services

    and adoption of new technologies

    Ecosystems protected

  • National or Local Scale
