The present study is conducted to improve the understanding of costs and benefits in association with changes in the extent and composition of tropical forests, grasslands, croplands in the context of climate change and to evaluate the trade-offs and synergies of conservation strategies for biodiversity conservation and climate change regulation. In particular, we aim for a Social Cost and Benefit Analysis of the conflicting land-uses between natural forests, silvopastoral systems (SPS) and agroforestry system in the Volcanic Central – Talamanca Biological Corridor in Costa Rica. The results obtained in this study are expected to assist local policymaking in terms of setting policy priorities that provides highest co-benefits (including carbon stock maintenance or enhancement, biodiversity and ecosystem services benefits, and sustainable incomes to the farmers) from alternative land-use management practices, and of identifying objectives that incorporates the interests of a wide range of stakeholders in Talamanca.
