    The Climate Action Reserve hosted a webinar on December 11, 2014 with guest speakers Cynthia Obadia, Argus Media, and Andre Templeman, Alpha Inception LLC. Starting January 1, 2015, California’s historic cap-and-trade program will double in size when distributors of transportation fuels and natural gas are included under the cap. Their inclusion is key to helping the state meet its emission reduction goals and improving the health of Californians. In this one-hour webinar, market experts examine this significant milestone in the development of California’s cap-and-trade program and what impact we should expect to see from it.

              Two communities affected by one new global market – the trade in carbon dioxide. In Scotland a town has been polluted by oil and chemical companies since the 1940s. In Brazil local people's water and land is being swallowed up by destructive monoculture eucalyptus tree plantations. Both communities now share a new threat. As part of the deal to reduce greenhouse gases that cause dangerous climate change, major polluters can now buy carbon credits that allow them to pay someone else to reduce emissions instead of cutting their own pollution. What this means for those living next to the oil industry in Scotland is the continuation of pollution caused by their toxic neighbours. Meanwhile in Brazil the schemes that generate carbon credits gives an injection of cash for more planting of the damaging eucalyptus tree. The two communities are now connected by bearing the brunt of the new trade in carbon credits. The Carbon Connection follows the story of two groups of people from each community who learned to use video cameras and made their own films about living with the impacts of the carbon market. From mental health issues in Scotland to the loss of medicinal plants in Brazil, the communities discover the connections they have with each other and the film follows them on this journey. 40 minutes The Carbon Connection, is a Fenceline Films presentation in partnership with the Transnational Institute Environmental Justice Project and Carbon Trade Watch, the Alert Against the Green Desert Movement, FASE-ES, and the Community Training and Development Unit.

                    The Kariba REDD+ project is working to protect a vast area of forest along the southern shore of Lake Kariba, Zimbabwe. The project area spans four provinces and covers 785,000 hectares of forest. The community-based project works by implementing a series of activities in conjunction with the local population. A reduction in deforestation is achieved through activities that significantly improve the livelihoods of the local population, such as conservation agriculture, honey production and fire management. 20% of the net profit of the carbon income will be invested in activities designed to benefit the poorest members of society and improve health and education in the project area communities. In the absence of this project forest would continue to be cleared. Carbon revenues provide the income needed to cover the cost of the activities. Once the initial investments have been made it will be in the interests of local people to continue the project activities far beyond the lifetime of the project.
