This week: Say Samal, former minister for the environment and now deputy prime minister of the Royal Government of Cambodia, talks with Innovation Forum's Ian Welsh about how the country benefits from REDD+ carbon projects and in particular in terms of forest preservation and positive impacts for the indigenous peoples living in the forests. They discuss the importance of a partnership approach and collective action to collaboratively deliver sustainable development.
Plus: the Intergovernmental Negotiating Committee on Plastic Pollution shares the global plastic treaty draft; $37 trillion of investment is required to meet the necessary energy transition by 2030, says Boston Consulting Group; and, CDP's new research shows G20 lacks nature-based policies to hit biodiversity targets, in the news digest.
