This booklet provides a range of case studies and other materials to make the forest sector more biodiversity-friendly, and socially beneficial.

This paper focuses on five of the most dynamic emerging economies

This guide provides a wide array of tools and examples on how synergies in the implementation of the UNFCCC and the CBD can be achieved through reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation (REDD).

The purpose of the publication is to provide biodiversity-relevant information to the UNFCCC. Main messages focus on: the impacts of climate change on biodiversity; the role of biodiversity in climate change adaptation; the links between biodiversity conservation and sustainable use and climate change mitigation; and ways and means to value biodiversity with regard to climate change responses.

This paper reviews the concepts of ecosystem resilience, resistance, and stability in forests and their relationship to biodiversity, with particular reference to climate change. The report is a direct response to a request by the ninth meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the CBD, in decision IX/5, to explore the links between biodiversity, forest ecosystem resilience, and climate change.

This paper reviews the methods and technologies for congestion pricing of roads. Congestion tolls can be implemented at scales ranging from individual lanes on single links to national road networks. Tolls can be differentiated by time of day, road type and vehicle characteristics, and even set in real time according to current traffic conditions.

This analysis investigates the ability of nonmotorized travel (walking, cycling) to help achieve transportation planning objectives. It indicates that nonmotorized travel provides significant benefits, and that these benefits can increase with cost effective incentives.

The Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) is inviting participation in the peer review of the draft report

Ocean fertilization has been highly publicized as a cost effective strategy for mitigating climate change. However, these costs do not effectively account for the observed shortcomings in sequestration efficiency, nor the total economic value of ecosystem function which might be lost due to ocean fertilization, and have been significantly underestimated.

The Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) is inviting parties to participate in the peer-review of the first and second meetings of the Second Ad Hoc Technical Expert Group (AHTEG) on biodiversity and climate change.
