The approaches developed by IIS aim to assist the planning and implementation of vegetation recovery projects, exploring synergies and trade-offs between biodiversity conservation, climate change mitigation and costs, under a variety of scenarios.
We seek to strengthen and defend the basic principles of balance between the economy and the environment, favoring research, planning and management in public and private fields, linked to the relationship between ecological, social and economic systems, in order to improve social well-being.
Impacts of incentives to avoid emissions from deforestation on global species extinctions
IIS coordinated a study aimed at analyzing and mapping the potential impacts of carbon-based conservation (e.g. REDD) on global species extinctions. We have assessed the impacts of habitat loss on 4,514 species individually.
