Revealed: more than 90% of rainforest carbon offsets by biggest provider are worthless, analysis shows
The Guardian, Patrick Greenfield, 18 January
The Guardian reported on studies that have questioned the credibility of some forest carbon credits registered under Verra's methodologies. Die Zeit and SourceMaterial also contributed to the reporting. This reporting has catalyzed a broad range of responses and discussion around the underlying analysis, the assumptions used, and the broader role of carbon credits in the fight against climate change. Verra responds that the studies overlooked "project-specific factors that cause deforestation", and states, "As a result, these studies massively miscalculate the impact of REDD+ projects". Verra's chief, David Antonioli, writes an article about why Verra engages in the REDD+ space. Steve Zwick, Senior Manager of Media Relations at Verra shares an in-depth LinkedIn article on the engagement he had with reporters about these noted scientific differences. The World Economic Forum publishes a response from leaders at The Nature Conservancy, World Business Council for Sustainable Development, Tropical Forest Alliance, Environmental Defense Fund, Wildlife Conservation Society, Conservation International, and the University of São Paulo who highlight 5 reasons why forest carbon credits are an important part of climate action. Mark Moroge and Breanna Lujan of the Environmental Defense Fund share tips for companies navigating the tropical forest carbon credit marketplace.  Carbon Pulse reports that carbon credit rating agencies like Sylvera and Calyx Global note that while scrutiny over the quality of REDD+ credits is “sorely needed,” The Guardian article relied on overly-simplified analysis to attack the entire concept of protecting standing forest through carbon crediting. (Read Sylvera's response here) Everland shares their own statement on what they see as the flaws behind the underlying analysis. CIFOR-ICRAF shares a post with insights from their scientists who caution not to abandon forest carbon offsets. 

The Guardian interviews leading scientists on the role carbon offsets should play in society's efforts to solve climate change. The Guardian's Environment Editor Fiona Harvey digs into how necessary carbon credits to protect forests will be in the coming years and if anticipated standards to hold credit providers and buyers to higher standards will solve the industry's issues. GreenBiz shares a report from Conservation International and the We Mean Business coalition that finds the majority of companies that are utilizing carbon credits do so as part of their strategy for immediate climate action alongside internal emission reductions. 
We are working to use this platform to share more diverse voices and perspectives in the global discourse around NCS. As part of this effort we are starting a new section in the newsletter that will highlight opinions and messages from stakeholders not normally covered in major media outlets. If you see an interesting perspective that you think more people should hear, please share it with us. Opinions shared in this section do not necessarily represent the views of Nature4Climate. 

Voluntary Carbon Markets: A misunderstood Climate Solution
By: Sandeep Roy Choudhury,

"The current resistance towards voluntary carbon markets around the world is a very privileged view that needs to change. Carbon markets often provide incentives and financing for the most downtrodden and the first responders to climate change. There are countries in the global south, who desperately need this last mile finance, a finance that is not a debt, grant or equity, a form of capital which derives itself from a business taking responsibility for their emissions voluntarily (not compensation, as this is often touted as, wrongly so in my opinion) as opposed to doing nothing. We do not yet live in a perfect world, which means that the transition to zero emission choices is going to take time."

Coming Soon to Carbon-Credit Markets: New Principles Aiming to Enhance Quality
Wall Street Journal, Dieter Holger, 18 January 
Wall Street Journal reports that the Integrity Council for the Voluntary Carbon Market announced it would publish a set of Core Carbon Principles in March 2023. "Around the third quarter of this year, credits meeting the standards will receive a CCP-compliant badge—a seal of approval akin to the certifications awarded to producers of organic food." The introduction of this standard and a separate standard by the Voluntary Carbon Market Integrity initiative that will assess corporate buyers are anticipated to fix some of the quality issues identified in current markets. BusinessGreen, The Guardian, E&E News, and Quantum Commodity Intelligence all cover the anticipated standard. 

Carbon Pulse shares that the Science Based Targets Network (SBTN) has begun accepting applications from companies wanting their nature-based targets validated by the group, expected to drive private-sector biodiversity ambition. Carbon Pulse reports that the UN Environment Programme with S&P Global have released a methodology for their Nature Risk Profile tool to analyze companies’ impacts and dependencies on nature. Carbon Pulse covers the launch of a WWF tool that is similarly intended to help companies and investors better understand their impacts and dependencies on biodiversity.
Lula accuses Bolsonaro of genocide against Yanomami in Amazon
The Guardian, Tom Phillips, 22 January
The Guardian reports that Brazilian President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva has accused Jair Bolsonaro’s far-right administration of committing genocide against the Yanomami people of the Amazon, amid public outrage over a humanitarian catastrophe in the country’s largest Indigenous territory. Reuters shares that Brazil's ministry of health has declared a medical emergency in the Yanomami territory, the country's largest Indigenous reservation bordering Venezuela, following reports of children dying of malnutrition and other diseases caused by illegal gold mining. Sumaúma provides a deeper perspective by sharing photographs and data obtained from the government that indicate that in the four years of Jair Bolsonaro’s far-right administration, 570 young Yanomami children died in Yanomami territory, in what have been called “preventable deaths”: diseases that are easily preventable or have readily available cures. The article details how the Yanomani sought additional government assistance from the Bolsonaro administration after "the dismantling of indigenous health care during the four years of Bolsonaro’s government" without results. Mongabay and many other outlets have reported on the illegal gold mining operations that have plagued the Yanomani people in the Amazon rainforest for years. UOL notes that the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights engaged Brazilian authorities about the dire conditions of the Indigenous population on several occasions during the Bolsonaro administration. Inside Climate News shares a report from the World Resources Institute that finds forests managed by Indigenous peoples and other local communities in the Amazon region draw vast amounts of planet-warming carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere while the rest of the rainforest has become a net source of the greenhouse gas.

Reuters reports on the first anti-deforestation law enforcement raids under President Lula. Reuters reporters joined the law enforcement officers on their mission in the rainforest state of Pará to stop loggers and ranchers illegally clearing the forest. Reuters also covers Brazil's Environment Minister Marina Silva's speech at the World Economic Forum Davos meeting, highlighting that international investments have not materialized as contributions to help her country reduce deforestation in the Amazon and contribute to fighting global climate change. Quantum Carbon Daily notes that Amazon deforestation in 2022 increased to its highest level in 15 years according to satellite data.

Bloomberg reports that Congolese opposition leader Moise Katumbi said he would cancel a controversial plan to allow drilling for oil and gas in one of the world’s most important carbon sinks if he wins an election later this year. A hopeful sign that Lula's victorious campaign centered on protecting nature and people could become the model for other politicians.
Brazilian meat giant under fire for allegedly misleading investors
The Washington Post, Steven Mufson, 18 January
The Washington Post shares that NGO Mighty Earth filed a complaint with the Securities and Exchange Commission alleging that Brazilian meatpacking giant JBS is already failing to meet its emissions targets that are tied to $3.2 billion worth of “green bonds” it sold to investors. Mighty Earth wants the agency to impose penalties and injunctions on the Brazilian company, which it says has contributed to or ignored deforestation carried out by its suppliers. If JBS fails to reach its targets for greenhouse gas emissions, it will be penalized and will pay bondholders a “step up amount or premium payment,” the company says. Global Capital, Feed Navigator, and ESG Investor all cover the story. 
Kerry Takes Davos Stage to Launch US ‘Natural Capital’ Survey
Bloomberg, Josh Wingrove, 19 January
Bloomberg covers the announcement of the new National Strategy to Develop Statistics for Environmental-Economic Decisions for the US announced by Special Presidential Climate Envoy John Kerry at the World Economic Forum's Davos meeting. The strategy will help track the value of land, air, water and other natural assets in relation to the economic activity they support, in the face of climate change risks.
World Economic Forum in collaboration with Bain & Company share a new report that defines a set of key sustainable food systems transitions (for which authoritative data is available across most countries) and selected seven "early mover" countries whose performance has been comparatively strong and whose examples and lessons are widely relevant. 
The National Indian Carbon Coalition and Meta pledge to support and promote a model of carbon projects that centers the leadership, traditional ecological knowledge, and vision of Indigenous Peoples for themselves and the land they manage.
Global Reporting Initiative shares its Biodiversity Standard for public comment to test the clarity, feasibility, completeness, and relevance of the drafted Standard.
Forest Trends publishes a report on the potential for an “Amazon Bioeconomy” that mimics traditional Amazon management systems, creating a diversity of supply chains based on the incredible natural wealth of the region. 
University of Oxford’s Smith School of Enterprise and the Environment leads publication of the State of Carbon Dioxide Removal report which shows most removal is done with NBS currently, but technology solutions will need to grow rapidly to meet climate goals.
Environmental Finance publishes Biodiversity Insight 2023, featuring articles about how investors are incorporating biodiversity concerns into their decisions in light of the Global Biodiversity Framework agreed at COP15.
USAID launches the Enterprises for Development, Growth, and Empowerment (EDGE) Fund, an innovative new fund designed to unlock and unleash outsized private sector impacts on global development challenges including nature conservation and restoration.
Taskforce on Nature Markets with the Igarapé Institute shares a report that explores the insights of industry experts and insiders across food, agriculture, finance, international trade and sustainability, with the goal of identifying market interventions that could promote nature positive and equitable outcomes, alongside four revealing regional case studies. 
World Economic Forum and Bain & Company publishes a briefing paper on the critical challenges delaying the voluntary carbon market from achieving scale. It also recommends actions that corporate leaders can adopt to address these challenges as part of a decarbonization agenda.
Forest Carbon Partnership Facility releases their 2022 Annual Report highlighting the Facility’s wins from 2021/22, program updates and details of their funds, including the large-scale jurisdictional forest fund – the Climate Emissions Reduction Facility which aims to be fully operational in 2023 and has a short-term capitalisation target of $1 billion.
U.S. Global Change Research Program shares two events for the public to weigh in on the nation's first National Nature Assessment that aims to take stock of nature across the nation, synthesize what we know about how nature matters to people's lives and the economy, and explore how nature is likely to fare in the future in Washington, DC. Event One and Event Two.
Fuelwood collection and unsustainable agricultural practices in Albania, particularly in the poorest regions that often lack economic opportunities, have left land eroded, degraded and unproductive for farming. This BioCarbon Fund assisted natural regeneration project restores 5,357 hectares of degraded land through initiatives that span 24 communes in over 100 villages across the country. By supporting natural regeneration of vegetation in the area, the initiative has helped decrease soil degradation, improve water quality and protect biodiversity. The project’s framework also sought input from the communities involved, who were partially responsible for choosing sites for reforestation and participated in the implementation of the programs.

N4C is compiling an index of NBS case studies, together with an interactive map, to highlight action on the ground. Each week, we will be choosing a case study to present, to help give concrete examples of work being done to bring NBS theory into practice. 

A set of new studies covered by The Guardian estimate that more than 90% of rainforest conservation credits developed by Verra do not represent carbon emission reductions.
Landmark deals give Indigenous key role in Canada resource projects
Two landmark deals in western Canada could reshape the role of Indigenous nations in resource development projects, placing greater power in the hands of groups that have long been excluded and signalling a possible shift in how industry and governments negotiate with communities on the frontlines of environmental degradation.
In this section, we'll be posting NBS-related jobs as a service to the community. If you have an opportunity you'd like featured in the newsletter, please send the details to us.
