Re: Rapid spread of coconut lethal disease in the Zambezia region of Mozambique

Hugh,

Thanks for drawing my attention to the exchanges about carbon trading
on the Coconut Groups site. I was interested and encouraged by the
information from Olivier Roupsard. It seems to me that carbon
trading is one area where coconut rehabilitation has a definite edge
on oilpalm development, in terms of attracting both government and
commercial corporate social responsibility (CSR) funding. Palm oil,
arguably a less carbon-friendly commodity, seems to have made the
running with CSR via the Sustainable Agriculture Initiative oilpalm
roundtable so maybe it is time for coconut protagonists to fight
back! However, in my view it is really up to producers and producer-
countries to lead this, through government, non-government or
commercial organisations that have sufficient clout to negotiate with
the various global "carbon brokers" that seem to be emerging, and
without this leadership there is not a lot that well-motivated
individuals like you and me can do about it. So come on you
producers - let us hear your plans. I am ready to try to help forge
links in any small way that I can but I doubt whether serious and
committed producer governments/organisations really need any help
from part-time consultants like me!

Best wishes,

Simon
