Dear Colleagues,
It is our pleasure to share a newly published booklet, Creating New Values for Africa: Emerging Ecosystem Service Markets , which contains 12 featured projects and initiatives in Africa demonstrating current innovations and challenges to carbon, water, and biodiversity PES implementation.
This work builds on Forest Trends’ commitment to training, policy advising, market tracking, and network building in Africa.  Our hope is that this publication will enable multiple stakeholders to gain increased access to PES best practice, develop a local community of PES learning, and design PES projects and policies which provide lasting ecosystem services and livelihood benefits. 

Thank you for your support which enables Katoomba Group efforts in Africa. It is through partnership that we can increase the scale of impact from our regional initiatives in 2011 and beyond. Looking forward, Forest Trends and The Katoomba Group will continue to deepen engagements that lead to investments in the ecosystem services upon which we all rely.

Please feel free to share the booklet among your networks.

Best Wishes and Happy Holidays to all!

The Katoomba Group
