File Rights and Resources Annual Review 2011-2012:Turning Point - What future for forest peoples and resources in the emerging world order? by Portal Web Editor — last modified Jan 10, 2013 11:59 AM
Worldwide, the use and management of natural resources and systems of trade and governance have been in flux for years. Yet 2011 may well be remembered as the year of definitive turning points: it was a year when the shift in global political and economic power to emerging economies became clear; it was a year when the conventional economic paradigm recognized the increasing scarcity of natural resources; and it was a year when it became clear that national and global development requires respect for local people and their resources.

File Surui: Carbon Finance & the Protection of Indigenous Peoples’ Forests in the Amazon by Joseph Badash — last modified Jan 10, 2013 12:00 PM
The Surui Indians of the Brazilian Amazon made contact with the outside world for the first time only 40 years ago. This contact inaugurated a period of settlement, road construction and disease which decimated their population and their ancestral lands. Now the Surui are working with Forest Trends, the Katoomba Group, Amazon Conservation Team and other partners to wed sophisticated mapping technology and global carbon finance to protect their culture and forests. By supporting processes of local consultation and planning, mapping, technical carbon assessments and links to markets, the Katoomba Incubator and partners propose to catalyze carbon finance for the protection of over 240,000 hectares of native forest and the support of a sustainable future for the Surui.

File An Ounce of Prevention Making the Link between Health and Conservation by Portal Web Editor — last modified Jan 11, 2013 02:02 PM
By Richard Margoluis, Samuel Myers, Jonnell Allen, Juanita Roca, Mary Melnyk, Jennifer Swanson, 2001, Biodiversity Support Program (BSP) It is clear that many local populations rely directly on the biodiversity around them for survival, and that they prefer not to destroy it. How then can the conservation community take advantage of this naturally occurring incentive to conserve? What are some of the characteristics of community-based conservation and development projects that successfully link human health to conservation? This document examines human health at personal, family, and community levels as a motivating force for conservation.
File The State of World Population 2001-Footprints and Milestones Population and Environmental Change by Rose Hessmiller — last modified Jan 10, 2013 12:03 PM
By United Nations Population Fund, 2001 Human activity is altering the planet on an unprecedented scale with more people using more resources with greater intensity and leaving a bigger "footprint" on the earth than ever before. The report examines the close links between environmental conditions, population trends, and prospects for alleviating poverty in developing countries. It finds that expanding women's opportunities and ensuring their reproductive health and rights are critically important, both to improve the well-being of growing human populations and to protect the natural resource base.
