ASB works to develop and implement local, national and international options to balance tradeoffs between forest conservation and poverty reduction. To do this, ASB needs to secure resources for global synthesis and facilitate participation of developing country scientists.
The ASB's medium term plan frames our fundraising efforts. ASB's major fundraising priorities are:
Participation, training and capacity building of developing country scientists
- Facilitate participation of developing country scientist to ASB's assessment of the tropical forest margins [PDF]. See more on ASB Millennium Assessment.
- Meeting information technology and knowledge management needs [PDF].
- South-south exchange: Fostering 'A-ha' moments [PDF].
- Training, capacity building and institutional strengthening in assessing natural resource management [PDF].
- ASB competitive grants programme [PDF].
- Local vision to shape a better future: Scenarios as tools for dealing with uncertainty at the forest margins [PDF]. See more on ASB MA scenarios.
- Adaptation of the ASB Matrix [PDF] as a tool for understanding tradeoffs.
- Debunking myths about forests and water: A policy briefing road show [PDF]. See more about ASB's work on forests and water and World Bank-Netherlands Partnership Project (ASB-BNPP).
