The incredible plan to make money grow on trees | Sam Knight 24.11.2015 Guardian: Environment
One of the most cutting-edge projects to tackle climate change is being pioneered in one of the most remote, undeveloped countries on earth. Does it have any hope of succeeding? By Sam Knight One day about five years ago, Frank Nolwo, a compact, quietly spoken boat skipper from the upper reaches of the Sepik river, in northern Papua New Guinea, woke up and headed into town.

The dam industry advocates for large hydropower projects to be funded by the Green Climate Fund, and many governments boost them as a response to climate change through national initiatives. For example, at least twelve governments with major hydropower sectors have included an expansion of hydropower generation in their reports on Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs).  At the 2015 Paris Climate Conference, COP21, International Rivers and a group of civil society organizations will present a letter to COP21 delegates asserting that large hydropower dams ...
