The roadmap, known as the Durban platform, is seen as the first step towards a new global climate change treaty to succeed the Kyoto protocol on climate change. However, it has not yet reached the stage of setting any new targets for emissions cuts or global temperature reduction.

This is important. I would like to propose a natureright system whereby the use of animal and plant images are linked to payment of a licence fee that goes to support conservation and habitat protection. For example, the polar bears in Coca Cola advertising would be chargeable at a particular rate that goes to Arctic or polar bear conservation.

Op zich vind ik dat een goed voorstel maar eigenlijk is het erg dat we niet zelfsprekend rekening kunnen houden met natuur. Opkomen voor natuur betekent niet dat we ons enkel moeten richten op gebieden met een hoge natuurwaarde. Geen enkel natuurgebied mag opgegeven worden. Het is niet omdat een natuurgebied niet echt waardevol is dat het mag verdwijnen om er bv een weg door te trekken. Voor buurtbewoners heeft dit gebied wel een maatschappelijke waarde en dit is niet in geld uit te drukken. Mensen willen enkel 'hun' natuurgebied behouden wat de waarde ook moge zijn van het natuurgebied. door krist.tack | 14, Dec 2011 09:41:12
