Copenhagen Daily #10
As we enter the final hours of the conference we get an assessment of progress (or lack thereof) so far from award-winning journalist George Monbiot. Kate Dooley from Fern and the Accra Caucus gives us an update on the forestry text – it’s in constant flux, but there’s still a huge risk that this could end up being a mechanism which gives perverse incentives to the logging industry, offset opportunities for rich nations and tramples over the rights of indigenous peoples and other forest-dependent communities. Frederika Whitehead gives us an update on the false solutions that corporate lobbyists are pushing for inclusion into the Clean Development Mechanism and Tom Besley interviews an activist who has been at the receiving end of some of the heavy-handed policing that’s been going on here this week.
