Ecosystem Marketplace Links
This list is not exhaustive, but represents sources of information that we have found
It is hoped visitors to this site will also find this is the case.
The list will evolve over time, and, I hope, be a starting point for all those who
- Ecosystem Marketplace
- The Ecosystem Marketplace, a project of Forest Trends, is a leading source of news, data, and analytics on markets and payments for ecosystem services (such as water quality, carbon sequestration, and biodiversity)
- CarbonFix Standard
- The CarbonFix Standard sets a quality benchmark for worldwide climate forestation projects. It was developed in 2007 by the non-profit organisation CarbonFix in cooperation with experts in the fields of forestry, climate change and development aid sectors. A useful reference source - not as yet globally recognised.
- Verified Carbon Standard
- The Verified Carbon Standard is a greenhouse gas accounting program used by projects around the world to verify and issue carbon credits in voluntary markets. Again a useful resource - worth visiting to assess.
- The Climate, Community and Biodiversity Alliance
- The Climate, Community and Biodiversity Alliance (CCBA) is a partnership of international NGOs and research institutes seeking to promote integrated solutions to land management around the world, with the aim of developing sound, adoptable standards.
