All sessions will have video, audio and written resources added live during the event and will be available to access after the event.

Join us to hear about carbon markets, both regulated and voluntary, including the emergence of opportunities for Reduced Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation (REDD), and Payments for Watershed Services (PWS) as they relate to buyers, contracts and payment distributions. We will also be addressing the emergence of market-based instruments for the conservation of mangrove ecosystems.

Meeting Topics

The 2010 South East Asia Katoomba Group meeting offers a unique opportunity to further develop:

  • Carbon Financing including post-COP15 discussions on national-level REDD systems, international, regional and national experience, investor and other stakeholder engagement, pilot demonstration sites, capacity building / training needs, and research agendas.
  • Payments for Watershed Services schemes throughout the region, by exploring current projects and experience from around the world where PWS agreements are operational.
  • Payments for Marine Ecosystem Services throughout the region, by exploring how climate change adaptation strategies can be complemented by mitigation measures and revenues from carbon credits; and identifying buyers for a range of marine ecosystem services.
  • Biodiversity Markets and Market-like Structures: offsets, biodiversity banking.
