Item #d94nov205

About two dozen proposals for joint implementation projects were submitted in October by businesses for evaluation under the U.S. Initiative on Joint Implementation (US IJI). The initiative constitutes a pilot program conducted under the Framework Convention on Climate Change. Proposals cover a wide range of activities and regions of the world; more proposals will be considered in the future. See Intl. Environ. Rptr., pp. 799-800, Oct. 5, or contact the US IJI Evaluation Panel, U.S. Dept. Energy, Forrestal Bldg, Washington DC 20585 (tel: 202-426-0072; fax: 202-426-1540).

One project already underway is the Russian/USA Forestry and Climate Change Project (RUSAFOR), supported by the U.S. EPA Climate Change Division and coordinated by Oregon State University and the Russian Federal Forest Service. So far, 1,250 acres of marginal farmland near Moscow have been planted with tree seedlings that will remove carbon from the atmosphere. RUSAFOR is a demonstration project for the utility industry; utilities may become involved now as a cost-effective way of achieving carbon emission offset credits. Contact Ted Vinson, Dept. Civil Eng., Oregon State Univ., Corvallis OR 97331 (tel: 503-737-3494; fax: 503-737-3052).
