2015-01-24 18:44 | By Jonathan Watts, The Guardian, 23 January 2015 The taps have run dry and the lights have gone out across swathes of Brazil this week as the worst drought in history spreads from São Paulo to Rio de Janeiro and beyond. More than four million people have been affected by rationing and rolling power cuts as this tropical nation discovers it can no longer rely on once abundant water supplies in a period of rising temperatures and diminishing rainfall. The political and economic fallout for the...

2015-01-24 18:12 | By Kate Evans, CIFOR Forests News Blog, 20 January 2015 Formalizing indigenous people’s participation in protected area management is not enough to ensure they can actually defend their interests against more powerful actors, a new study has found. If participation is to meaningfully include marginalized groups, we must examine how it happens on the ground, says the paper’s lead author, Tessa Minter, a post-doctoral researcher from Leiden University and the Center for International Forestry...

2015-01-24 17:57 | By David Bank, Huffington Post, 22 January 2015 Investing in conservation has long been the province of development-finance institutions and philanthropic foundations. Now, wealthy individuals are starting to invest as well, opening a potentially huge new source of private capital for ecosystem preservation. Dozens of individual investors committed a total of 15 million euros, or about $17.5 million, to purchase "Nature Conservation Notes" through Credit Suisse, which appears to be the first...

2015-01-24 17:55 | By Bjorn Carey, Stanford News, 22 January 2015 When it comes to measuring the carbon storage potential of the Amazon forest, indigenous people might outperform sophisticated satellites. The results from a long-term collaboration between Stanford scientists and indigenous people in Guyana suggests that traditional remote sensing techniques might be undervaluing the region's carbon storage potential by as much as 40 percent. The work could influence how indigenous people in Guyana and elsewhere...

2015-01-24 17:50 | The Jakarta Globe, 23 January 2015 Our guess is that the unrest is deliberately perpetuated because it benefits the ruling elites in Papua and Jakarta. Another mystery is what is it the authorities are keeping hidden in Papua such that the news media, especially the foreign press, is denied a peek. Are they concealing the mass graves of native Papuans? Or crimes such as illegal logging and the destruction of the environment? If there are no human rights violations, environmental destruction or...

2015-01-24 17:47 | By Sophie Furnival, CIFOR Forests News Blog, 22 January 2015 Remote sensing. Unmanned aerial vehicles. Spectrometry readers. When teamed with traditional forestry techniques, these high-tech approaches may revolutionize the way we monitor forests, experts believe. With the effects of climate change becoming ever clearer, advances in forest monitoring are vital. “The IPCC has established beyond reasonable doubt that climate change is happening and it’s man-made,” said Christopher Martius, a...

2015-01-24 17:43 | SustainableBusiness.com, 21 January 2015 Recently we wrote that carbon emissions can be significantly reduced through the widespread application of compost, and now California is providing incentives for ranchers to do it. They can get tradable greenhouse gas emission reduction credits, bringing them another revenue stream for sustainable land management practices that also improves the soil and its ability to hold water. Ranchers can sell them on California's Greenhouse Gas Reduction Exchange...

2015-01-24 17:41 | The Telegraph, 21 January 2015 A conman who posted photos on Facebook of him enjoying the high life - drinking champagne and posing with wads of cash and a Rolex watch - has been jailed for two years. Daniel Burgoyne, who posed as a "man with a Midas touch", claimed he could make a fortune for clients by trading in diamonds, wine and carbon credits, tradeable certificates in rights to emit carbon dioxide. The 24-year-old compared himself to Jordan Belfort, the character played by Leonardo...

This was contained in a statement issued by the office of the National Agency for Great Green Wall (NAGGW), after a courtesy call on the Director-General of the agency, Mr Goni Ahmed, by representatives of World Bank and REDD+ Secretariat....

Richard McNally, the REDD+ Global Coordinator for the Netherlands Development Organisation (SNV) was involved in the Cat Loc Landscape – Cat Tien National Park Pro-Poor REDD+ Project, located just north of Ho Chi Minh City, in one of Vietnam’s largest and best-known national parks.

2015-01-24 17:26 | By Ben Goldfarb, High Country News, 19 January 2015 The scientific literature is strewn with ecosystem appraisals. Bats provide up to $50 billion annually by eating insects; insects offer $57 billion by disposing of waste, pollinating crops and feeding fish and game. Beavers in Utah’s Escalante River watershed have the potential to provide hundreds of millions of dollars in flood control and other services. The humble street trees of Corvallis put $4 million in Oregonians’ pockets. The Colorado...

2015-01-24 17:20 | By Taryn Nixon, Energy Live News, 19 January 2015 A Californian forestry company has been rewarded with carbon credits for preserving a forest. The 4000 acres of coastal habitat south east of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina has been given the carbon credits as part of a Government scheme. More than 162,000 carbon credits have been awarded to the company. One carbon credit is equal to one tonne of carbon dioxide removed from the atmosphere. It’s a partnership between carbon offset developer Green...

2015-01-24 17:12 | By SciDev.Net, 23 January 2015 Measuring carbon emissions is crucial for planning a response to climate change. But scientists have so far struggled to keep track of the world’s carbon stocks and how they vary. “We want to pull carbon out of the atmosphere and put it into forests as a way of reducing greenhouse gas emissions,” says Greg Asner, an ecologist at the Carnegie Institution for Science based at Stanford University, United States. At the Carnegie Airborne Observatory, he has developed...
