Governments meeting in Glasgow at the UN Climate Conference astonished many by agreeing the ground rules for a new global carbon market that may open the door for a big step up in financial flows to forested nations and communities.
As experts internalize the implications, many ask:
‘What was agreed, what are the next steps, will this help deliver faster climate action and what about those who say it is just a green washer’s charter that will cause more harm than good?’
