10 February 2012
Hola and bonjour! With the expanding presence of forest carbon projects and their stakeholders in Latin America and much of French-speaking Africa (as well as Spain and France), there is an increasing need for accessible information in those regions. Our French and Spanish speaking audience will be happy to know that the State of the Forest Carbon Markets 2011 report is available in the two languages. You can download the executive summary of the French version and the full report in Spanish here
. If you haven’t downloaded a copy of the English report, you can find it here
We’re also excited to announce that the gears are turning at the Ecosystem Marketplace, as we get ready to launch our State of the Forest Carbon and State of the Voluntary Markets survey. Even better, we’ve developed a new, user-friendly survey that feels a little less like a tooth extraction.
Many of you have responded to the survey before, and it’s those responses that make the State of reports a go-to global market resource. Last year 209 organizations provided data on 412 forest carbon projects in 49 countries.
To ensure that we capture this same stellar response – and then some! – in 2012, we’ve upped the ante. For forest carbon project developers that submit project-level data by February 28th, 2012, we will highlight each as a featured project on the Forest Carbon Portal Project Inventory in the months of March-May.
These and other stories from the voluntary carbon marketplace are summarized below, so keep reading! And if you value what you read in this news brief, consider supporting Ecosystem Marketplace’s Carbon Program as a Supporting Subscriber.
