Improving land use policy, conservation and management through use of appropriate decision tools in Brazil’s Atlantic Forests.
Eduardo Ditts research focuses on water resources within the Atibainha reservoir catchment
that lies in the Atlantic Forest region of São Paulo, Brazil. Water resources and tropical forests are vulnerable
to degradation in this region due to increasing urbanisation.
Aerial photographs and remote sensing are being
used to produce topographical and land use maps and to determine the spatial
distribution of ecosystem services such as water supply, carbon storage, and
soil processes and properties.
Ecological vulnerabilities and economic values of these services are being assessed in areas controlled by different stakeholders. Results of these assessments are being incorporated in a geographic information system to reveal debtors and creditors of ecosystem services.
Ultimately, Eduardo Ditt hopes to develop an economic model to evaluate how market, information and policy failures affect forest resources and services. The model will serve as a policy tool to analyze scenarios obtained by simulating different regulatory mechanisms.
