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. Nolwo, who is 42, has nine children. He was adding an extension to his house, and needed to buy some building materials. You do not just pop to the shops if you live in the upper Sepik. Nolwo left Kagiru, his village, in the early morning. Like other isolated clutches of palm-roofed houses on the river, Kagiru has no electricity, no mobile phone signal, and no road connecting it to anywhere else. Even by Papua New Guinean standards, the region is regarded as hot, poor and difficult to live in. When it rains, the place floods. When there is a drought, the creeks and streams dry up, stranding people and their canoes. It takes days to ...

10 Reasons Why Climate Initiatives Should Not Include Large Hydropower Projects 24.11.2015 International Rivers Sitewide RSS Feed
Large hydropower projects are often propagated as a “clean and green” source of electricity by international financial institutions, national governments and other actors. They greatly benefit from instruments meant to address climate change, including carbon credits under the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM), credits from the World Bank’s Climate Investment Funds, and special financial terms from export credit agencies and green bonds. 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 ...

World, business leaders call for global carbon pricing policies | Reuters 20.10.2015 FirstPost: Bollywood

WASHINGTON A half dozen heads of state joined forces with leaders of states, cities and corporations on Monday to call for wider adoption of carbon pricing policies ahead of a United Nations climate change summit in Paris in December. German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Philippines President Benigno Aquino III and French President Francois Hollande were among the world leaders who issued a joint statement through the World Bank urging governments and businesses to set up carbon markets and tax carbon emissions. Representatives from 190 countries are meeting in Bonn, Germany, this week, for last-round discussions on the language of a global climate change agreement.

China says must make 2-4 trillion yuan green investments per year | Reuters 9.10.2015 FirstPost: World

LIMA China must make green investments of between 2 trillion and 4 trillion yuan ($315-630 billion) per year over the next five years, but the government can only cover 15 percent of that, China's central bank deputy governor, Yi Gang, said on Thursday. "Most of the finance has to come from the private sector, so we have to provide a positive incentive mechanism," Yi said on the sidelines of International Monetary Fund meetings in Lima

India unveils climate target to cut carbon intensity 2.10.2015 Asian Age: Business
Representational Image. India has promised to make its economy more energy efficient and cut the carbon produced per unit of GDP growth by 33-35 percent by 2030 from 2005 levels in a climate-change policy statement released ahead of a U.N. summit in Paris in December. India, the world's third-largest emitter of greenhouse gases, also said it would target 40 percent cumulative installed power capacity from non-fossil fuel sources by 2030, though said this would require U.N. financial support. The pledges, submitted to the United Nations late on Thursday, were broadly in line with expectations, given emerging economies such as India have resisted setting specific targets to cut emissions. India is not yet prepared to go as far as China, the world's biggest emitter, which pledged at the end of June to reduce its carbon intensity by 60-65 percent by 2030, partly through the use of carbon trading. Beijing also said it would bring its absolute emissions to a peak by "around 2030". As well as not setting such a ...
