INSIDE STORY: Action on climate vulnerability - Lessons from Quito

The city of Quito is a good example of how climate vulnerability information can feed into the policy cycle and be translated into meaningful actions on the ground. Now translated from its Spanish original, you can read this 'Inside Story on climate compatible development' in English. [more]…

Seeing political settlements through the city: A framework for comparative analysis of urban transformation

This article presents a new analytical framework for studying cities in the developing world based on the ‘political settlements’ approach. This approach is explored through three narrative ‘sketches’ of contemporary urban development in Eastern Africa. [more]…

REPORT: Results-based reporting for REDD+  

The Coalition for Rainforest Nations (CfRN) and CDKN present their joint initiative: the Reporting for Results-based REDD+ project, a three-year project to build capacity for measuring reductions in greenhouse gas emissions and enhancement of carbon stocks in agriculture, forest and other land use in 21 tropical and subtropical forest countries. [more]…

WORKING PAPER: Building trust in forest carbon payments: Learning from the world of financial accounting

This paper argues that REDD+ actors can learn from financial accounting, which has played a key role in maintaining investors’ confidence in mainstream capital markets. The authors recommend how accounting of REDD+ impacts can evolve to build greater trust. [more]…

Experiences of working in a consortium - from the DECCMA project

In this short clip the DECCMA team outlines some of the highlights and challenges of working as part of an international, multi-disciplinary consortium, and some lessons learned for future consortium projects.

Developing more conflict-sensitive adaptation approaches

The brief highlights the need for a better understanding of conflict and cooperation in improving global responses to impacts and interventions designed to build resilience and support sustainable development in vulnerable countries.

Forest-related interventions and conflicts

The social impacts of mitigation strategies and large-scale land acquisitions have resulted in increased pressures and issues of conflict in some developing countries. This policy brief presents the issues around approaches that are not conflict-sensitive, and shows how conflicts can be transformed; how climate interventions could foster cooperation.

Mangrove conservation is protecting livelihoods and carbon

In Kenya, local people are conserving their mangroves in exchange for community development projects, in a scheme that is impacting both Kenyan and international policy. Mangroves are highly efficient at capturing carbon, much of which ends up buried below ground and is stored away from the atmosphere.

Hydropower and conflicts

Hydropower is often considered a clean and renewable option for developing countries looking for low-regret climate-smart investments. Yet negative socio-environmental repercussions of large hydropower dams are difficult to minimise and could result in creating or exacerbating conflicts. Two research consortia present findings related to policy, implantation and practices
