File Partners with nature: How healthy ecosystems are helping the world’s most vulnerable adapt to climate change by Anna Woltman — last modified Jan 10, 2013 10:58 AM
Healthy, bio-diverse environments play a vital role in maintaining and increasing resilience to climate change, and reducing risk and vulnerability. This is particularly critical to the world’s 2.7 billion poor people, many of whom depend on natural resources directly for their livelihood and survival. To coincide with the Copenhagen conference, BirdLife has published a new report Partners with nature: How healthy ecosystems are helping the world’s most vulnerable adapt to climate change. BirdLife International's experience shows that supporting the application of local knowledge and community engagement can build the resilience of natural and societal systems, delivering locally appropriate solutions to help communities, countries and economies adapt to climate change. The role of ecosystems in climate change adaptation can usefully be applied at all scales: local, landscape, national, transboundary and international. The BirdLife Partnership’s unique local-to-global structure has enabled structures and processes to be established that contribute to long-term and flexible approaches to climate change adaptation.

File Climate change and migratory species by Rose Hessmiller — last modified Jan 10, 2013 10:56 AM
Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Report on the impacts of climate change on migratory species. As DEFRA announced on October 5th, 2005: Our climate is changing and there is already compelling evidence that animals and plants have been affected. We conducted a literature review and consulted experts through a specially organised international workshop to identify the range of climate change impacts and to consider how migrant populations could be affected by these changes.

File Climate Change and Biodiversity by Stanzin Tonyot — last modified Jan 10, 2013 02:26 PM
Published in 2002 by Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. The current rate of biodiversity loss is greater than the natural background rate of extinction. Acritical question for this Technical Paper is how much might climate change (natural or human-induced) enhance or inhibit these losses in biodiversity?

File Baselines and Additionality Under the Clean Development Mechanism: Issues and Options by Amee Jankot — last modified Jan 10, 2013 09:54 AM
The Kyoto Protocol provides for several flexible mechanisms to assist in reducing greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) worldwide. The mechanisms allow countries that have committed to specific GHG emission limitations (called Annex 1 countries) to meet their commitments in part through investing in projects to reduce emissions or through emissions trading with parties in other countries. One of these mechanisms is the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM). This paper explores some of the issues associated with the additionality criterion and the development of baselines, and identifies the hurdles to be overcome in order to attract foreign investment associated with the CDM.
File Eco-Development and Perspectives on Global Change from Developing Countries by Michael Colby — last modified Sep 14, 2014 10:56 PM
Chapter 5 in book GLOBAL ACCORD: Environmental Challenges and International Responses (MIT Press, Nazli Choucri, Ed., Cambridge MA/London, 1993. Used in many graduate courses on international development and environmental politics/policy. Development efforts face increasingly complex and heterogeneous sets of situations. While in the past we could speak of developing countries as a whole, this is no longer possible, as differences between and within these con tries have been continuously growing. We begin by exploring some emerging features of the global context, address a few common misconceptions about climate change, and then delve more deeply into various developing country perspectives and approaches, and their implications for attempts to resolve the apparent global change/global environment and development dilemmas.
