UNEP-WCMC, with support from the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU), the German Federal Agency for Nature Conservation and the UN-REDD Programme, has launched four new country reports highlighting how spatial analysis can help to identify areas where carbon management activities could secure additional benefits for biodiversity and ecosystem services. New maps have been developed for Cambodia, Jiangxi Province in China, Ecuador and Nigeria in collaboration with national partners.
The reports are being launched at the Convention on Biological Diversity’s 10th Conference of the Parties meeting in Nagoya, Japan (see press launch). All reports are publicly available and downloadable at www.carbon-biodiversity.net.
