The same old wine but now in old bags; sorry Elders, but I have lost trust in you as you lack the courage to stand up really for the planet. The time for niceties and political pragmatism has past. History will judge you.

Tim Jackson: Let’s Be Less Productive

Tim Jackson: Let’s Be Less Productive | Imagem Agricultura e Floresta | Scoop.it
The relentless drive for productivity may have some limits; if our economies don’t continue to expand, we risk putting people out of work.

 

Excellent article by Tim Jackson ("Prosperity without growth") pleading for less productivity and more quality of life to deal with our growth crisis.

Do you buy Champagne? How about Kobe beef, Florida Orange Juice, or Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese? Each of these are food items protected by trademark and international treaty through Geographic Indications. All but one of them is used correctly in the United States. This article provides deep insight into international use of food labels, or food brand names, how the U.S. government is not playing well, and the deep meaning of real Kobe beef.

O Pará passa a integrar o seleto grupo dos Estados que já aderiram ao programa de Agricultura de Baixo Carbono (Programa ABC), do Ministério da Agricultura, Pecuária e Abastecimento (Mapa). Nesta quinta-feira, 24, acontece o Seminário de Sensibilização do Programa ABC, no auditório do Banco da Amazônia. “O Pará assume uma posição de liderança mais uma vez porque é um dos primeiros estados a estruturar o Comitê Estadual do Programa ABC”, afirma Hildegardo Nunes, titular da Secretaria de Estado de Agricultura (Sagri), que coordenará o programa no Estado.

ArcGIS Runtime: A New Option for Focused Mapping Apps | It's All About Data

For me, the most significant development at Esri’s 2012 Developer Summit was the pre-release of ArcGIS Runtime. ArcGIS Runtime represents a new direction for building lightweight, focused mapping applications with Esri technology. The resulting applications are responsive, trivial to deploy, cloud friendly, and optimized for their target platforms – be they mobile or desktop.

The first hints about Runtime came at the 2011 DevSummit, more was revealed at the 2011 UC (see especially the third slide for platform support), and this year’s Esri Federal GIS Conference brought a demo and technical overview.

I see Runtime as a natural extension of two larger trends: Esri’s focus on a web service architecture (e.g. the transition towards ArcGIS Server and ArcGIS Online), and the proliferation and success of small, focused applications on mobile devices.....

iREDD hedges against avoided deforestation's unholy trinity of leakage, permanence and additionality

iREDD hedges against avoided deforestation's unholy trinity of leakage, permanence and additionality | Imagem Agricultura e Floresta | Scoop.it

Workable financial mechanisms are essential to abate greenhouse gas emissions. Deforestation, which contributes a large proportion of total global emissions, must be avoided as an effective emissions-reduction tactic, and to alleviate biodiversity loss and poverty. However, incentives to reduce emissions from deforestation and forest degradation (REDD) have had mixed and suboptimal success because of opportunity costs and administrative and technical issues, in particular, leakage, permanence, and additionality. We show that these latter concepts can be ambiguous, potentially contrived and in some cases, generate perverse outcomes. Encumbering avoided-deforestation projects with these administrative shackles risks massive increases in global deforestation and a concomitant loss of biodiversity, ecosystem services and emissions-reduction opportunities. We offer a solution built on a proven insurance-based hedging principle, a concept we call iREDD, that could indirectly address specific technical and administrative challenges, whether real or contrived. Project-specific iREDD insurance policies and premiums would be negotiated upfront using a simple assessment of risk based on governance quality, the integrity of management plans, liquidity, monitoring and evaluation frameworks, and political acceptability. iREDD acts as both an incentive for prudent forest management given the seller's potential financial windfall if forests are diligently managed, and guarantees not to disenfranchise the buyer.
