With great expectation, the COP-27 will most likely be regarded as the summit of enactment, as it aims to bring into effect the agreements that have been tailored to comply with article 6 of the Paris Agreement, which has been the basis for the effectiveness of a global carbon market.
Following the meeting in Glasgow, in which more structuring rules were defined, it is now expected that, at COP-27, mechanisms for the coordination of more refined and operational processes will be adopted, capable of guaranteeing the circulation and security of the assets that, in a "final gestation period", fasten the details that will support the generation of a stong, transparent and liquid market. As a result, this course of action will most certainly lead to greater participation of the private sector, vital to support this important and crucial phase for the "birth" of the global carbon market.
MyCarbon is a leader in nature-based solutions in Latin America working in full swing as it develops solutions for the carbon market on several fronts, delivering high quality projects to help build a future resilient to climate change.
The challenges of the decade and the impacts we are already facing.
We are experiencing an immensely significant and decisive period as to the direction we will embark on towards a sustainable relationship with the planet. In March 2020, the UN General Assembly "baptized" the period from 2021 to 2030 as the "Decade on Ecosystem Restoration". If in fact we are in the decade of ecosystem restoration, it is inconceivable that we should remain in the cycle of degradation.
When we think about ecosystem restoration, we almost immediately think of the relationship between ecosystems and forests, however we need to be aware that the scope is far broader. Yes, there is no question that forests are under constant threat of ongoing destruction, and that they are vital to the planet as well as humans, however, let us keep in mind that mangroves, swamps, prairies, the savannah, coastal areas, and coral reefs, among others, are under tremendous pressure and are in a state of collapse. These resources and their ecological value are essential and fundamental for sustaining a balanced and self-protective environment. We rely on this balance, for the sake of the preservation of the planet, species, and all of society.
In retrospect we are indeed living in a decade of reassessment, of finding new meanings to our interactions. It is a time to reflect, rethink, evaluate the "design" of things, and seek new understandings.
There is a great need for the restoration of these environments that provide essential ecological services, such as quality water for agriculture and livestock, and of which also serve as habitats for various species, fish, and pollinators which are clearly in decline.
The Decade on Ecosystem Restoration is a call for the immediate and intensified efforts to effectively protect and restore degraded ecosystems as an objective way to counter the climate crisis.

The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) report declared the “Decade for Ecosystem Restoration 2021-2030" as a global summons to heal our planet.
Only that which is sick and, due to its illness, exhibits obvious signs and symptoms, needs to be cured. The evidence that something is not right grows increasingly stronger and difficult to swallow for some 3.2 billion people worldwide. Approximately 40% of the world's population is already suffering from the impacts of climatic imbalance and its repercussions.
It is necessary that both the causes and the effects be treated, for the symptoms are inevitable and uncontrollable consequences that tend to increase every day if nothing is done. With this in mind -the need to tackle both the causes and remedy the effects- the COP's have been striving to define targets and methodologies, both in the short and medium term, to address the main issues arising from the climate imbalance, such as:
* financing mechanisms for loss and damage.
* increased support for adaptation measures on a local scale.
* review and strengthening of local GHG reduction targets.
* financing actions designed to be resilient to climate change.
* setting the pace for actions to curb climate change by advancing the global balance of emissions.
In order to address each of these aspects, it is necessary to undergo scientific development, mathematical modeling, and the creation of new methodologies. A lot of time and effort must be invested. Professionals from various sectors are mobilized to develop the expertise required to influence society as a whole, generating the energy needed to turn the wheels that make this great circle turn.
MyCarbon is leading the way out of climate risk by offering nature-based solutions, through regenerative agriculture practices, forest and biodiversity protection measures that generate positive impacts in local communities. It also promotes the preservation of native forests and investments in partnerships for forest restoration. In addition, it works closely with cattle ranchers, providing the needed support to help implement regenerative practices, restoring degraded areas, enhancing the productivity of their properties, thereby eliminating the need to further expand the limits of agricultural boundaries.
MyCarbon believes in a future resilient to climate change.
