18 April 2013 | Greetings! In this month’s newsletter, we have a collection of stories that illustrate the complexities of environmental mitigation. These news highlights take us to places where mitigation is missing (in Alberta), just getting started (Wyoming), mysteriously lackluster (New York state) or maybe even impossible (Alaska). We also have new perspectives on the stacking and bundling debate, reporting on the failure of meaningful Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) reform in the EU, and the latest on a new fund for natural capital in the Americas.
Speaking of the wonderful complexities of mitigation, the National Mitigation & Ecosystem Banking Conference is fast approaching and we’re getting excited. Ecosystem Marketplace will be covering the conference live – bookmark our blog and follow us on Twitter if you haven’t already, to get videoblogs, highlights, and recaps of the key themes and outcomes from the conference.
Our water team also just launched a Spanish-language version of our Watershed Connect information portal, offering news, resources, a project inventory, and networking opportunities in the water world for the Spanish-speaking world. We invite you to take a look or forward to a colleague who’ll find it useful.
—The Ecosystem Marketplace Team
