    Much of São Paulo’s urban expansion is driven by the development of informal settlements on its periphery, which includes the catchment areas that provide important environmental services such as open space and catchments for drinking water reservoirs. In such areas, governance of land, water services and water resources, traditionally administered separately, are in fact interdependent.

    Thousands came together in "Hopenhagen" from 7-18 December 2009 for what was the most covered and talked about of any United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNF CCC) Conference of the Parties (COP) to date. Reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation in developing countries (REDD-plus)1 was one of few issues on which progress was made. However, implications of the wider negotiations for REDD-plus are not yet clear.

    Available scientific literature indicates forest degradation emissions are of a similar magnitude to those from deforestation. The potential for further emissions from degradation is an especially pressing concern in the Asia-Pacific region, where many forest areas are intertwined with highly populated areas and intensive timber harvesting. Including forest degradation in a reduced emissions from deforestation and forest degradation (REDD) mechanism will be crucial to ensure that both the Asia-Pacific and global forest sectors realize their full potential to mitigate climate change.

    The scale of REDD is one of the most important issue being discussed in the ongoing REDD debate. Three options exist: national, sub-national and a nested approach. Between 28 February and 2 March 200, twelve participants from eight Asia-Pacific countries came together in Bangkok to discuss issues of REDD scale. This brief synthesizes their opinions.

    The Bali Action Plan identified two key areas for the forest sector to contribute significantly to global climate change mitigation. One area concerned approaches and incentives relating to reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation in developing countries (REDD). The second area focused on the role of conservation, sustainable management of forests and enhancement of forest carbon stocks in developing countries. REDD+ has become synonymous for a combination of these two areas.

    The 450 million people living in and around Asia-Pacific forests hold a vital stake in the success of REDD. For effective reductions in emissions from deforestation and forest degradation, such schemes must:

    Should market efficiencies or social objectives drive the design of Payment for Environmental Services (PES) schemes? 

    This issues paper challenges the notion that markets should solely drive PES schemes, given the emerging evidence of how PES can impact the livelihoods of the rural poor. Blindness to social welfare can fuel the very real risk of adverse social outcomes, and result in missed opportunities to improve the circumstances and opportunities of the rural poor.

    Hosted in Hanoi, Vietnam, from 18 to 20 August 2009, the First Regional People and Forests Forum on Carbon Financing and Community Forestry brought together more than 80 people from 12 countries, including key government, civil society, private sector, and international organization participants. During the three days, participant learning and discussion was stimulated through case study and topical presentations, expert panel discussions, a film viewing, group work sessions, and a field visit to Vietnam’s only afforestation/reforestation Clean Development Mechanism (A/R CDM) site.

    In December 2004, the passing of the Forest Protection and Development Law (FPDL) legally recognized community forest management (CFM) in Vietnam for the first time. Despite this step, skepticism remains about whether CFM can work in practice and to what extent legal recognition contributes to effective forest protection and management.

    During 2008, in response to these concerns, the Forest Governance Learning Group (FGLG) visited 25 villages to learn from field implementation of CFM in seven provinces.
