The second tab includes indicators designed to track the effectiveness of conservation endowments and trust funds. These indicators were developed based on best practices for the success of consevation endowments, conservation trust funds, and other long-term financing arrangments.

Manual Fundo de Áreas Protegidas

Um importante elemento inovador do Arpa na sua primeira fase (2003-2010) foi a constituição do Fundo de Áreas Protegidas (FAP). Trata-se de um fundo fiduciário do tipo endownment fund (fundo de doação) que investe apenas os rendimentos reais do capital depositado. O FAP é revestido de caráter de política pública e interesse público, motivo pelo qual encontra no Ministério do Meio Ambiente seu órgão instituidor. O Fundo Brasileiro para a Biodiversidade (Funbio), executor financeiro do Arpa, realizará a gestão do FAP.

Este Manual Operacional do Fundo de Áreas Protegidas foi concebido no intuito de orientar e apresentar as diretrizes para o uso dos recursos do FAP, sendo uma ferramenta de trabalho de fácil acesso para todos os envolvidos na sua implementação e operação cotidiana.

Os procedimentos descritos neste manual refletem os acordos de doação realizados na primeira e na segunda fase do Arpa, que viabilizaram a criação e a implementação do FAP e o Acordo de Cooperação assinado entre o Ministério do Meio Ambiente e o Funbio para execução do Programa.

O Manual Operacional do FAP está organizado em seis capítulos. O primeiro discorre sobre o Arpa, seus objetivos e suas metas. O segundo capítulo abrange os objetivos do FAP, apresenta sua governança e como será estabelecido o gerenciamento do Fundo. O terceiro descreve a composição de recursos do FAP. A abordagem sobre a operacionalização do Fundo, no que diz respeito ao planejamento das UCs, encontra-se no quarto capítulo. O quinto relata a prestação de contas e a auditoria físico-financeira. No sexto é demonstrado o mecanismo de salvaguardas do FAP. Por fim, são apresentados os anexos deste Manual.
