Throughout Southeast Asia, there is increasing regional interest in market-based conservation strategies, including payments for ecosystem services (PES). While a number of projects are underway, PES in the Southeast Asia region primarily occurs on an ad hoc basis through small-scale pilot projects. However, information, capacity to design and manage PES deals, and institutions to support on-the-ground implementation are often lacking and have hindered efforts to scale up.

Carbon Markets, Forestry & REDD USA

GreenPower Conferences

With the continued delay in US Carbon legislation causing prolonged uncertainty around the future of a compliance market in the US, we are receiving feedback from our customers that they are wary of committing resource to the US market.  With the subsequent stalling of US Carbon market development, the predominant positive movement has come in the area of forestry carbon offsets and this sector is moving forward with renewed vigor.

Oslo Climate and Forest Conference

Government of Norway's International Forest and Climate Initiative

The climate and forest meeting hosted by President Sarkozy in Paris on 11 March 2010 provided valuable input for the early establishment of a partnership.

Deforestation and forest degradation in developing countries accounts for around 17% of global greenhouse gas emissions. Measures to reduce these emissions (known as REDD+) are the quickest and least
expensive way of achieving large emission cuts. In the UN climate change negotiations, substantial progress has been made on setting up a REDD+ mechanism.
