International researchers launched a $12 million study on Monday intended to help many of the world's poorest farmers benefit from multi-billion dollar schemes to limit emissions of greenhouse gases.

The 18-month Carbon Benefits Project will examine rural sites in Kenya, Niger, Nigeria and China to see how much carbon is stored in trees and soil when land is managed sustainably.

Find out what 120 global, multinational and regional organisations attitudes are to forest carbon projects in general. In addition the report also examines the motivating factors behind corporate decisions to purchase forest carbon offsets and the perceptions which organisations have regarding the additional community and biodiversity benefits that many forestry projects often provide.

This Project Design Document is prepared for the Marais des Cygnes National Wildlife Refuge Restoration Initiative to meet the standards of the Climate, Community, and Biodiversity Alliance.

This Paper aims at connecting the need for transport actions in developing countries to the international negotiations on a post-2012 climate change agreement. It outlines the decisions to be taken in Copenhagen and the preparations to adequately implement these decisions from 2013.
