IF Editorial Team
This week: On a recent trip to Cambodia, Ian Welsh spoke to Kong Bunchhean, a smallholder farmer living in Sovanna Baitong village in the country’s Southern Cardamom region. Kong reflects on how his, and his family’s lives have benefitted from the region’s Redd+ carbon project. This is part of Innovation Forum’s ongoing From the Forest Front-line series in partnership with Everland.
And, at Innovation Forum’s sustainable apparel and textiles conference in New York last month, IF’s Toby Webb and Olam Agri’s Jordan Lea talk about some of the sector trends that emerged from the conference.
In the news: IEA report highlights sharp increase in demand for cobalt and nickel; Western US drought causes a drop in hydropower; and Planet Tracker research finds low interest in biodiversity-specific data from investors.
Host: Ian Welsh
