Panama - Rural Productivity Project : environmental assessment (Spanish)

The rural productivity project for Panama is expected to have a positive environmental impact and advance global biodiversity goals by (i) strengthening management of protected areas and natural habitats and (ii) fostering environmentally sustainable productive activities in rural areas that encourage preservation of natural resources. Potential negative environmental impacts from productive activities and small public works are addressed through a robust identification, evaluation, and mitigation framework. Environmental benefits will be monitored through baseline studies, impact evaluation studies, and data collection. Indicators of key environmental benefits include: (i) reduction of deforestation and increase in self-financing in protected areas; (ii) improvements to degraded lands and slowing of agricultural intervention in strategic areas for biodiversity conservation; (iii) increased populations of indicator species; and (iv) improved water quality in pilot watersheds. An important focus of the proposed project is improving the policy, regulatory, and institutional frameworks for environmentally sustainable growth.
