Mexican rock heroes trial novel 'green trading' system
Date:6/21/2012

One of Latin America's biggest rock bands is leading a novel project that proposes to tackle climate change at a local level and promote local sustainable development.

Grammy Award-winning Man, based in Guadalajara, Mexico, has always been committed to environmental projects in the region. It says this project, which emerges from research carried out under the UK Government's Darwin Initiative since 2009, is one of the most important it has undertaken.

The project, which has also been given the endorsement of Mexico's President, Felipe Caldern, gives much needed support to an area of Mexico, La Primavera Forest, that has recently been devastated by fire. It also links closely to the theme of 'green economies', and the interaction between environment and economy, which features strongly in this week's Rio +20 United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development.

It is based on research, led by Professor Jon Lovett, of the University of Twente, in the Netherlands, and coordinated by Arturo Balderas Torres in Mexico looking at the potential to engage citizens with local forest owners and communities to compensate them for the ecological services they receive while promoting rural development.

In collaboration with the Mexican University of ITESO, the Darwin Initiative project conducted a study in an area of Western Mexico called La Primavera, an important biosphere reserve near the city of Guadalajara, to find out whether direct links could be made between citizens, who enjoy the benefits of having La Primavera national park on their doorsteps and landowners who work to improve biodiversity.

The model proposed by the team's research envisages local payment schemes for the services provided by the reserve, such as carbon sequestration to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions, that would be used to directly compensate landowners who manage their land to promote conservation and biodiversity rather than simple profitability.
