Linking Journalism with the Web of Life
I've noticed a rise lately in the frequency of times I see the name PricewaterhouseCoopers pop up in research about ecosystem services and economics. Most recently they have produced a series of reports with the United Nations Development Program on habitat banking in Latin America and the Carribean. Habitat banking is an ecosystem service market in which habitat "developers" protect or restore ecosystems to generate credits that can be bought by other developers as part of a requirement to mitigate damage caused by construction projects. PwC's reports evaluate the benefits of such systems and barriers to to implementation in eight countries. They should be required reading for anyone getting involved in such schemes in Latin America.
That's not all PwC has been up to, though....
