Saving The Last Wild Coffee Forests In Ethiopia (Episode #450)

KQED World: Sat, Dec 22, 2012 -- 6:00 AM

Bio-Diversity in Ethiopia - Saving the Last Wild Coffee Forests: It took years of campaigning, but in 2010, Ethiopia's wild coffee forests at last gained protected status as the UNESCO Kafa Coffee Biosphere Reserve. The forests harbor some 5000 varieties of coffee and number among the world's hotspots of bio-diversity. They are a veritable Noah's Ark of animal species. The International Climate Initiative has provided three million euros for the protection of these forests. The 760,000-hectare forest region is Ethiopia's green lung and home to rare species of monkeys, leopards and even lions. Protecting the coffee forests would also help preserve a unique culture native to the area.

The Realities of Climate Change Hid Hard In Mexico (Episode #449)

KQED World: Sat, Dec 15, 2012 -- 6:00 AM

Climate: Mexico - Reforestation and Water Protection - In the province of Chiapas in Mexico, climate change is bitter reality. Droughts are lasting longer, and rainy seasons getting shorter. But when the rains do come, they can be so heavy that they cause flooding or mudslides that bury entire villages. People on site have to protect themselves. And as farmers, they also have to adapt to climate change. The Nature Conservancy organization is active in the area, promoting long-term measures.

Are Climate Change Summits Really Worth The Energy? (Episode #448)

KQED World: Sat, Dec 8, 2012 -- 6:00 AM

How can the world curb climate change? The first step is to cut carbon emissions by at least 25 percent. In order to make this target official, politicians and environmental activists are coming together for another UN Climate Change Conference - this time in Doha, Qatar. Getting them all there, however, will leave a serious carbon footprint.

Cooperatives creating more stability in Afghanistan (Episode #447)

KQED World: Sat, Dec 1, 2012 -- 6:00 AM

Foreign troops are preparing to leave Afghanistan, but the country is far from pacified. That makes projects that create jobs all the more important. The eastern province of Nangarhar, near the border to Pakistan, is the site of a positive development. Here several agricultural cooperatives have been formed. That is leading to more stability in the region.
