Climate change, carbon market instruments, and biodiversity: focusing on synergies and avoiding pitfalls
Published Online: Aug 11 2017
DOI: 10.1002/wcc.486
Degraded mires are an important source of global CO2 emissions, which have received insufficient recognition by climate policy. Recently, several carbon market initiatives (such as peatland credits) have been developed to tackle this issue by developing and testing instruments which account for and monetarize the carbon kept stored in organic soils by re‐wetting of mires.

Is adaptation reducing vulnerability or redistributing it?
Published Online: Oct 26 2017
DOI: 10.1002/wcc.500
Responding to the risks that climate change poses, actions of one group of coffee growers may create new vulnerabilities for farmers in other parts of the world. If climate adaptation activities are simply shifting risks and vulnerabilities around the board, the effectiveness and sustainability of such endeavors is questionable. This paper explores whether, and how deeply, vulnerability redistribution is being considered by different actors across the spectrum of adaptation practice.
