Quotes

..."Environmental riskrisk mitigation is clearly driving private investment in watershed health," says lead report author Genevieve Bennett. "Water companies, for example, are finding it more cost-effective to pay for healthy forests that mitigate fire or flood risks upstream, rather than to face supply disruptions after an extreme event."
...Greenpeace is calling on Indonesian citizens to be part of the "Tigers Eye Community'ù, to protect the Indonesian forest from destruction. Greenpeace is urging the government to take immediate action to protect the habitat by expanding moratorium areas, evaluate existing permits and implement full peatland forest protection."
