Edited by Jaime Carlson, Bryan Garcia, Claire Jahns, Eric Roberts, and Katie Schindall of the Center for Business and the Environment at Yale, this book highlights major trends in the forest carbon markets and, in many cases, underscore the importance of policy to providing investment security.
Carbon Finance II: Investing in Forests for Climate Protection is a collection of lectures given during the 2008–2009 Carbon Finance Speaker Series at the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies and the Yale School of Management. The lectures highlight major trends in the forest carbon markets and, in many cases, underscore the importance of policy to providing investment security.
The contributors to this lecture series are all practitioners at the intersection of land management, finance, and policymaking, and range from academics, state-level policymakers, and forest conservationists to entrepreneurs, forestry investors, and insurance professionals. Many offer an optimistic perspective on the role forests will play in carbon reductions, but also provide a balanced assessment by addressing the barriers to the success of the forest carbon market.
This collection is an excellent resource for environmental finance and land management professionals as well as those new to the world of carbon markets. It is a nuanced synthesis of a complicated and dynamic set of market opportunities relevant to the work of investors, fund managers, entrepreneurs, policymakers, and foundations.
