Crocodile skin shoes, corruption, oil exploration, deforestation, and the Republic of Congo

Last week, REDD-Monitor wrote about the US$65 million that the Central African Forest Initiative is giving to the Republic of Congo, supposedly to stop deforestation. Just over one week after the deal was signed, the republic of San Marino confiscated €19 million that the Republic of Congo’s corrupt dictator, Denis Sassou Nguesso, had allegedly squirrelled […]...

Le Figaro estimates that a one-way flight from Brazzaville to Paris would cost about US$500,000. Needless to say, Sassou Nguesso’s wife, Antoinette, travelled with him. […]...

REDD+ more competitive than critics believe, study finds

A global strategy aimed at stemming climate change-inducing carbon emissions from tropical forest loss would better accomplish its goals if implemented in the manner intended, according to recent research. The strategy known as REDD+, or reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation, could also help to end the “business-as-usual” interests that have been blamed for […]...

The relevance of using in situ carbon and nitrogen data and satellite images to assess aboveground carbon and nitrogen stocks for supporting national REDD + programmes in Africa

Abstract Background To reduce the uncertainty in estimates of carbon emissions resulting from deforestation and forest degradation, better information on the carbon density per land use/land cover (LULC) class and in situ carbon and nitrogen data is needed. This allows a better representation of the spatial distribution of carbon and...

A Day at a National Forest Inventory Camp in Papua New Guinea (Short Version)

The world’s 3rd largest rainforest – after the Amazon and Congo Basin- is found on the island of New Guinea. It is shared by 2 countries – Papua New Guinea (PNG) to the east and Indonesia to the west. The island only covers 1% of the planet’s land area, but it harbors 5% of its animal and plant species - including the world’s largest butterfly. Yet despite being a biodiversity hotspo...

Yes, the Amazon on fire. Yes, it burns every year. Yes, this is a problem. No, REDD won’t solve it

So far this year, more than 72,000 forest fires have started (or been set by cattle ranchers) in Brazil’s rain forest. That’s an 80% increase over the same period last year. But the amount of CO2 emitted from the fires is lower than in 2010 and significantly lower than in the early 2000s. The fires […]...
