6 December 2011 | While negotiators at the UNFCCC’s 17th Conference of Parties are pre-occupied with posturing and minutia (“what exactly is a forest?”),and the rest of Durban is just, well, occupied, Ecosystem Marketplace is moving at lightning speed to keep you updated on any developments we think would be of interest to readers. Because when it rains, it pours.
Get your daily dose of Durban using the following Ecosystem Marketplace website resources:
Daily Durban Blog: at the close of each day, we’ll post a summary of REDD+, Kyoto Protocol and other developments as we take them in.
Daily Recommended Events: follow each day’s link to find detailed information about the who’s, when’s and where’s of the events we’ll be covering, attending – or wish we were atteding.
Daily Summary: a daily compilation of all our Durban coverage –including blogs, articles and additional commentary as relevant.
Complementing our COP17 coverage, a new paper from Ecosystem Marketplace explores carbon offset programs in Europe – and how a decision to extend the Kyoto Protocol (or not) could have big implications for the region’s tiny offset supply.
Durban also marks an important deadline for raising sufficient funds to publish the “State of the Voluntary Carbon Markets report again in 2012”. To do so, we must find 9 more donors to contribute US$3,000 apiece – by the end of COP17.
Help us keep this valuable information available to market participants, researchers, decision-makers, investors and others – and join our growing coalition of supporters that now also includes the American Carbon Registry, Camco, the CarbonNeutral Company, Forest Carbon Group, myclimate, the Santiago Climate Exchange, South Pole Carbon Assets Management and Terra Global Capital.
