  • In water we trust: How Quito's water trust funds succeed - News & Community
    a change in Bogotá s city government said Alejandro Calvache the Conservancy s water funds coordinator for Colombia The fund was working the whole time but it didn t have the impact we wanted it to have Fund managers recently have begun funding some conservation projects such as reforestation campaigns around Bogota s reservoirs which means pulling money out of a fund that s supposed to be growing as fast as possible Almost every one of the water funds makes investments immediately to show investors results It s a strategic move and a lesson we learned from the Quito water fund explained Ramos That fund drew heavy criticism from politicians for choosing to finance the fund for five years before paying anything out for conservation projects Ramos points to funds such as Colombia s Valle del Cauca and Mexico s Monterrey as examples where conservation projects were started immediately upon starting the trust fund This is one of the delicate maneuvers with starting and managing a water fund choosing how much funds to invest versus how much to pay out for conservation rehabilitation and education projects You could capitalize these things a lot faster if you take 100 percent of donations and invest it into the fund said Kauffman But that s politically unpopular Having dirt fly on the ground immediately in the short term is key to the success of these programs Kauffman said that various trust funds have tried various ways to balance investment and spending The sweet spot seems to be putting 60 percent away and using 40 percent on projects In fact that s precisely the balance Bogotá s fund has struck Water for the future With 14 water trust funds in place and plans for another 14 the Conservancy is counting on water funds to provide the financial backbone for protecting watersheds throughout Latin America It has set up three in Brazil but due to local laws they do not function as endowed trust funds Learn more about early work supported by the Great Rivers Partnership in Brazil Echavarría notes that a big advantage to such funds is that they are long term The law in Ecuador permits ours to operate for 80 years In Peru it s 35 years and 25 years in Colombia she said That means water funds are immune from political cycles said Ramos But the challenge of attracting and satisfying stakeholders speaks to what water funds do not do They do not address political frameworks nor do they have any regulatory power And depending on the buy in of water utilities they do not necessarily pass the costs to the consumer This makes it difficult to conserve the resource because consumers aren t made aware of its value Others criticize water trust funds as a businessification of water The environment shouldn t be turned into a business chain said Jaime Ignacio Vélez Upegui a professor in the Water Institute at Medellin s National University in Colombia Water funds are too

  • Everyone has a Plan, Until... - News & Community
    to the system of floodways the system performed remarkably well the flood passed without any levee failures or loss of life along the Mississippi a stark contrast to 1927 when hundreds of levees broke and hundreds if not thousands of people died In addition to diversifying flood management systems green infrastructure projects tend to provide a variety of secondary benefits For example the Yolo Bypass a 60 000 acre reconnected floodplain along the Sacramento River today is the best and largest remaining floodplain habitat in California s Central Valley supporting native birds and fish and providing recreation and open space to a growing region Using All of Our Tools There is no one answer to solving the world s water management challenges and green infrastructure is not a panacea or silver bullet And for water managers and river scientists the work never ends and so we should look for and adopt tools like green infrastructure that help us keep bobbing and weaving and help us stay strong and flexible so we can absorb the blows as they come and still stay on our feet and stay in the ring Credit for that vivid lesson in humility goes to John Briscoe Harvard professor and formerly of the World Bank during his remarks this week in Sweden where he received the Stockholm Water Prize at World Water Week Blog originally published in Conservancy Talk Jeff Opperman PhD lead scientist for The Nature Conservancy s Great Rivers Partnership has been working to protect rivers and lakes for nearly 15 years He has provided strategic and scientific guidance to freshwater conservation projects across the United States as well as in China Africa and Latin America As part of his focus on improving the environmental sustainability of hydropower he is a member of the governing board of the Low Impact Hydropower Institute LIHI which certifies environmentally preferable hydropower operations Opperman earned his B S in biology from Duke University and a PhD in ecosystem science from the University of California Berkeley He then studied floodplain ecology during a post doctoral fellowship at the University of California Davis His scientific and policy research has been published in journals such as Science BioScience and Ecological Applications Tags Add Comment Items on this list require content approval Your submission will not appear in public views until approved by someone with proper rights More information on content approval Title Body Full Name Attachments Hidden Blog Tools Something Missing Is there information that you think should become part of our knowledge share Recommend Looking for More Scientific Resources The Nature Conservancy offers tools to guide freshwater conservation Explore Copyright 2012 The Nature Conservancy Privacy Policy Terms of Use The Nature Conservancy is a nonprofit tax exempt charitable organization under Section 501 c 3 of the Internal Revenue Code Donations are tax deductible as allowed by law Quick Launch Categories Category 1 Category 2 Category 3 Manage Subscriptions layouts images ReportServer Manage Subscription gif en us NewsAndCommunity layouts ReportServer ManageSubscriptions aspx
