Paris climate deal: Here's how the world found common ground in landmark climate deal 12.12.2015 DNA: Urban Tales
After four years of global negotiations, two weeks of intense talks and more than a few sleepless nights, climate officials from almost 200 nations meeting in Paris are on the cusp of a landmark accord to arrest climate change. On Saturday, hosts France released the final text of a "Paris Outcome", this one devoid of the bracketed text that represented the sticking points yet to be resolved. Written in the opaque legal language that has evolved from more than two decades of UN climate talks, the pact sets the world a roadmap for breaking away from the fossil fuels that have powered the global economy since the Industrial Revolution. The new text is 31 pages, against 27 on Thursday and more than 50 at the start of the talks. National delegations have broken up to review the text, with hopes high that they will return to a formal session to adopt it later on Saturday. Following are details of the new draft: FINANCE Developed nations promised in 2009 to mobilise $100 billion a year by 2020 from both public ...

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 ...
