Climate Change: Financing Global Forests

Climate Change: Financing Global Forests

Date: 2008
Creator: Eliasch, Johan
Description: According to the Office of Climate Change press release, the Eliasch Review aims to provide an analysis of international financing to reduce forest loss and its associated impacts on climate change. The focus related to the international efforts to achieve a new global climate change agreement in Copenhagen in 2009. The Eliasch Review focuses on the financing required to produce significant reductions in forest carbon emissions. It also examines how mechanisms to address forest loss can reduce poverty while preserving ecosystem biodiversity and water services.

Cultivating the Future: Food in the Age of Climate Change

Cultivating the Future: Food in the Age of Climate Change

Date: 2009
Creator: Girardet, Herbert; Bree, Axel; Rohde, Anja & Hilmar Bee
Description: The brochure promotes government incentives for farmers to lower agricultural greenhouse gas emissions and expand carbon sinks by sequestering carbon through organic farming and reduced tillage; reducing nitrous oxide emissions through minimal use of nitrogen fertilizer, capturing methane emissions from anaerobic manure handling facilities; reducing the use of fossil fuels on farms; increasing the generation of electricity from wind, solar and small-scale hydro; expanding the use of practices like hedges, shelterbelts, and forested riparian zones; expanding local food supply for local consumption; and supporting the use of sustainable biochar derived from farm and urban organic wastes.

Integrated Assessment of Hypoxia in the Northern Gulf of Mexico

Integrated Assessment of Hypoxia in the Northern Gulf of Mexico

Date: May 2000
Creator: National Science and Technology Council (U.S.). Committee on Environment and Natural Resources.
Description: This document details the ecological and economic effects of low oxygen (hypoxic) conditions in the Gulf of Mexico. This condition is caused by deforestation, river channelization, and the overuse of nitrogen in agricultural fertilizer. This document summarizes scientific evidence for the causes of hypoxia, the negative impact on Gulf of Mexico fisheries, and long-term national strategies for managing and mitigating the problem.
