An analysis of the growing body of evidence linking community forest rights with healthier forests and lower carbon dioxide CO2 emissions from deforestation and forest degradation. When Indigenous Peoples and local communities have no or weak legal rights, their forests tend to be vulnerable to deforestation and thus become the source of carbon dioxide emissions. Legal forest rights for communities and government protection of their rights tend to lower carbon dioxide emissions and deforestation. Even when communities have legal rights to their forest, government actions that weaken those rights can lead to high carbon dioxide emissions and deforestation. With deforestation and other land uses accounting for 11 percent of annual global greenhouse gas emissions, the international community agrees on the need to address deforestation as an important component of climate change. Community forests represent a vital opportunity to curbing climate change that has been undervalued.
Climate Change and Sustainable Urban Development in Africa and Asia
Asia's cities are changing rapidly. Over the next 20 years, they will have to expand their infrastructure and services to cater to another one billion people. In order to be able to meet the growing development needs in the long term and in line with the goals of the Agenda for Sustainable Development, cities will need extensive support with the planning, financing, construction and maintenance of the necessary infrastructure. The aim of the Cities Development Initiative for Asia CDIA is to provide support for cities by way of pre-investment feasibility studies and the prioritisation of projects.
Cities are growing differently today than before. As much as 70 percent of people in emerging cities in Asia, Africa and Latin America are under-served. Furthermore, cities face challenges in four areas:. We need a new approach that will benefit all urban residents and create sustainable, productive cities for the 21st century. The World Resources Report WRR examines if prioritizing access to core urban services, we can create cities that are prosperous and sustainable for all people. This first installment of the WRR develops a new categorization of cities into emerging, struggling, thriving, and stabilizing cities.
