Britain targets 2017 for start of European carbon market reforms

REDD monitor news - Mi, 22/10/2014 - 10:54
Reuters, 20 October 2014 | Britain wants reforms to Europe’s Emissions Trading System (ETS) to start from 2017 to tackle the scheme’s massive oversupply and boost investment in clean technologies. Siding with an earlier view from Germany, the British government said in a statement on Monday that it wants the so-called market stability reserve (MSR) to be in place four years earlier than proposed by the European Commission. The Commission, the EU executive, has proposed from 2021 to set aside hundreds of millions of surplus carbon allowances from the ETS to help firms cope with economic shocks. Britain also wants 900 million carbon allowances from a more limited backloading reform programme to be cancelled or inserted directly into the reserve.

‘Let them eat cake’: A dangerous approach to bushmeat and Ebola

REDD monitor news - Mi, 22/10/2014 - 09:46
By Robert Nasi and John E. Fa, CIFOR Forests News Blog, 21 October 2014 | “Qu’ils mangent de la brioche”—Let them eat cake—is the phrase supposedly uttered by a great princess (though often attributed to Marie Antoinette) upon learning that France’s peasants had no bread. This is a similar response, in our estimation, to what seems to be permeating from certain quarters with respect to the consumption of bushmeat and its links to the outbreak of Ebola virus disease (formerly known as Ebola haemorrhagic fever). A number of opinion pieces have appeared in reputable magazines such as New Scientist and The Ecologist containing the suggestion that disease outbreaks from the Ebola virus could have been avoided if only people stopped eating wild meat. This argument is unsound. One of the reasons for this misjudgment has to do with what seems to be a general misunderstanding of human diseases, their origins, and what we have to do to live with them.

Research in Central Africa finds troubling gaps in knowledge of climate change

REDD monitor news - Mi, 22/10/2014 - 09:36
By Joan Baxter, CIFOR Forests News Blog, 20 October 2014 | Policymakers working on forests and climate change in Central Africa often lack knowledge of fundamental concepts of those issues, according to a sobering new study. The research points to a greater need for capacity-building in the countries that are home to the world’s second-largest area of tropical forest. It is all but undisputed fact—few exceptions aside—that tropical forests can be a powerful force in the fight against climate change, absorbing carbon from the atmosphere even as they age, while emitting carbon when they are cleared. But not enough of this information has reached people where findings meet forests, according to the study, “What are we talking about? The state of perceptions and knowledge on REDD+ and adaptation to climate change in Central Africa.” This knowledge gap could hamper efforts to help local people manage their natural resources and slow the uptake of programs such as REDD+...
