FIÃES PERFORMED LECTURE ON IMPORTANCE OF ENVIRONMENTAL COMPENSATION.

Con el propósito de fomentar el involucramiento empresarial, el Fondo de Inversión Ambiental de El Salvador (FIAES) organizó una conferencia sobre la importancia de las compensaciones ambientales para el desarrollo sostenible dirigida a las empresas de los distintos sectores del país, el pasado 20 de septiembre.

La charla magistral titulada “el estado del arte de las compensaciones ambientales en Latinoaméria” estuvo a cargo de Vladimir Varela, consultor internacional para organismos de cooperación e investigador del Centro Agronómico Tropical de Investigación y Enseñanza (CATIE).

Como parte de los temas que se abordaron, Jorge Oviedo, director ejecutivo de FIAES, expuso sobre los servicios, beneficios e impactos de los proyectos realizados con fondos de compensación ambiental que administra esta organización.

Se contó también con la participación de Jorge Castaneda, gerente de evaluación ambiental del Ministerio de Medio Ambiente y Recursos Naturales de El Salvador (MARN), quien explicó el proceso de cálculo de la compensación para proyectos ambientalmente viables.

En el evento se compartieron casos exitosos de organizaciones no gubernamentales que han ejecutado proyectos con fondos de compensación ambiental y se presentaron los planes y proyectos de restauración ambiental que FIAES desarrolla en 8 territorios priorizados.

La compensación ambiental es una herramienta que genera acciones que buscan producir un efecto positivo equivalente a un efecto negativo en el medio ambiente. A partir del Acuerdo Ministerial N° 31 del 21 de marzo del 2014, FIAES se convierte en el mecanismo idóneo para dar cumplimiento a las medidas de compensación ambiental dictadas por el Ministerio de Medio Ambiente y Recursos Naturales, MARN, en los procesos de evaluación ambiental.

En opinión de Jorge Oviedo, director ejecutivo de FIAES, gracias al convenio con el MARN, las empresas pueden realizar este trámite a través de FIAES de forma más ágil y efectiva. Además, se logra que las medidas de restauración tengan más impacto, porque FIAES ya cuenta con planes y acciones definidas para la recuperación de los ecosistemas, que se implementan en alianza con diversas entidades no gubernamentales.

Entre los beneficios de realizar la compensación ambiental a través de FIAES están:
• Es oportuno y eficiente, ya que reduce tiempos y elimina procesos a las empresas
• Disminuye costos porque FIAES identifica el proyecto, sitio y la entidad implementadora.
• FIAES proporciona seguimiento técnico, financiero y comunicacional a los proyectos de restauración de ecosistemas.
• Asegura procedimientos transparentes porque:
– Informa a MARN sobre los fondos recibidos y la inversión realizada.
– Publica los proyectos aprobados, su fuente de financiamiento y realiza rendición de cuentas.
– Cuenta con auditorías internas y externas.

FIÃES you committed to the restoration of ecosystems in site Ramsar complex Jaltepeque

San Luis Talpa, 29 de agosto 2018

FIAES, en alianza con cuatro organizaciones ejecutoras inauguró cuatro proyectos de restauración y conservación del sitio Ramsar Complejo Jaltepeque, en el que se invertirán $656,725.84 mil; FIAES aporta $335,981.95 y 320,743.89 son la contrapartida por parte de las ejecutoras.

En dicha inversión se contempla la restauración de 130 hectáreas intervenidas con prácticas agrícolas sostenibles, en las que se espera sembrar unas 35,000 plantas forestales y frutales, por medio de sistemas agroproductivos; asimismo, se proyecta la restauración de 16 kilómetros de las cuencas al rio Jiboa y la reforestación de bosques en las áreas naturales protegidas: Nahualapa, Tasajera y Escuintla.

Con estas actividades se prevé mejorar la calidad de vida de 545 familias beneficiadas y de esta forma, FIAES ejecutará acciones para asegurar la provisión de servicios ecosistémicos en el mediano y largo plazo, con que se esperan reducir los efectos adversos del cambio climático, mediante la implementación de los procesos de gobernanza y la gestión sostenible de los recursos naturales y sistemas productivos que fortalecerán los medios de vida de las comunidades locales aledañas y para garantizar la biodiversidad.

Gracias a la inversión de FIAES se emprende una nueva estrategia de intervención territorial, que se basa en el Plan de Desarrollo Local Sostenible para la región hidrográfica y sitio Ramsar Estero de Jaltepeque e incluso de la política del Plan de Acción y Restauración de ecosistemas y paisajes de El Salvador, del Ministerio de Medio Ambiente y Recursos Naturales, MARN 2018-2022

Acciones de FIAES en el Complejo Jaltepeque:

Para la ejecución de los proyectos de la convocatoria 38 de FIAES se cuenta con el apoyo financiero de FOMILENIO II, con una inversión de $490,890 para implementar el plan integral de compensación ambiental, generada por los trabajos de ampliación de 27 kilómetros de la carretera litoral, en el tramo comprendido entre el desvío a Comalapa y la ciudad de Zacatecoluca.

Los cuatro proyectos que se desarrollarán en el sitio Ramsar Complejo Jaltepeque serán liderados por las siguientes organizaciones: Fundación Doménech, responsables del proyecto de tortugas marinas; ADEPROMINA, con Sistemas agroforestales; Asociación Los Nonualcos, ALN, que se encargarán de la restauración de bosques de galería y sistemas agroforestales, y Asociación Madrecría, que ejecutará el proyecto de restauración y protección de las áreas naturales, que se detallan:

 Reforestación de 49 hectáreas en las riberas del río Jiboa, en sectores aledaños al puente Jiboa.
 Promover buenas prácticas de agricultura sostenible en 60 hectáreas, en zonas aledañas al río Jiboa, laguneta El Zorral y laguna Nahualapa;
 Reforestación de 30 hectáreas en áreas naturales protegidas, incluyendo el saneamiento ambiental y rehabilitación de la laguna Nahualapa.
 Establecimiento de dos corrales para la protección y conservación de tortugas marinas que anidan en el estero de Jaltepeque (incubación de al menos 200,000 huevos y liberación de 170,000 neonatos, aproximadamente).

Se contempla también la rehabilitación de la laguna de Nahualapa por medio de la extracción de 3 hectáreas del jacinto de agua (Eichhornia C.) y la remoción de sedimentos y troncos en 1 ½ kilómetros en el sector del desagüe del humedal; también se evaluará el nivel de sedimento de la laguna.

FIÃES inaugurates its V environmental photography exhibition: "Restoring the connection to life"

San Salvador, 6 December 2017
The background of the initiative for the Americas, FIÃES and environmental photographers collective: Fotobiosfera, inaugurate the V Edition of the exhibition environmental photographs.
The exhibition, called: restoring the connection with life, is composed of 45 photographs captured by members of the collective in a period of one year and during several field visits to the territories in which the FIÃES projects are developed.


The theme of this exhibition is: restoring the connection with life, slogan that identifies this Fund across 25 years of work in the conservation of the natural resources of El Salvador.
FIÃES promotes through these activities, culture and art as a strategy of environmental education. This exhibition, which is held annually, aims to bring a message of awareness about the conservation of our natural resources in seven territories of this Fund's investment:
• The Apaneca - Ilamatepec biosphere reserve
• Conservation and the impossible bar of Santiago Ramsar site area
• Complex wetlands and Ramsar Cerrón Grande site
• Xirihualtique - Jiquilisco biosphere reserve
• Los Cobanos conservation area
• Conservation Nahuaterique area
• Gulf of Fonseca conservation area
In addition, focuses on the major areas of work: restoration of natural areas, sustainable management of natural resources, agriculture, coastal and marine resources, restoration of degraded areas, watershed protection and sustainable livestock management Hydrographic and strengthening of sustainable tourism.

The Group Fotobiosfera is composed by 10 national professional photographers, convened by FIÃES five years ago, and since then, contribute so committed and voluntary work to convey, through their optical and artistic form, the message of environmental awareness.
This year they participate Tammy Cabrera, Leyla Pineda, María Teresa Díaz Colocho, Luis Tobar, Salvador Meléndez and David Alfaro. Also joining as guest photographers territorial communicators of the units of Territorial link FIÃES, José Rivera, Diego Campos, Nelson Rodríguez and Ernesto Martínez.
