Proposal: Funding Farmers for Climate Change Mitigation (F2C2M) Contest: Land Use: Agriculture, Livestock & Forestry 2014 Thank you for your contest entry, Funding Farmers for Climate Change Mitigation (F2C2M). We appreciate your willingness to share your ideas, and also the time and effort you put into developing a proposal and submitting it to the
. As your entry did not sufficiently address some of the revisions the Judges were hoping to see, we did not advance it to the next round of competition. We encourage you to keep developing your idea. Transfer your proposal to a Workspace to re-open it, make edits, add collaborators, and even submit it into a future contest. You can do so by logging into your account, opening your proposal, selecting the Admin tab, and clicking “Move proposal.” We welcome you to stay involved in the Climate CoLab community: support and comment on proposals that have been named Finalists, and vote during the public voting period to help select the contest’s Popular Choice Winner. Climate CoLab will be opening more contests throughout the year and you are welcome to submit your proposal to those contests as well. Keep up the great work. We hope that by working together, we all can create solutions that wouldn’t otherwise be possible. Sincerely, Contest Fellows If there are additional comments from the Judges & Fellows, they will be included below.

Dear Mr. Greg Lee,

We are sorry to hear about your medical emergency and hope that things are resolving themselves in a happy direction.

We enjoyed reading your proposal. Please consider entering the Climate CoLab contest again next year!

Best wishes,
Land Use Fellows and Judges

The basic idea is good, but there are no plans here for implementation. No budget is presented, probably because the proposers are not sure what they are going to do.


(1) It is a very complete list of items that are addressed in this presentation. It provides information about two options but does not give an estimate of them -- How much will emissions be reduced or sequestered vs. business as usual levels? What are the proposal’s costs?

(2) The project would be started in Southeast Asia due to the high population density, high proportion of rural agriculturalists, and the common practice of clearing land with fire. The project work will be conducted by local farmers, government leaders, environmentalists. To create its F2C2M micro-credit program it would seek support from government banks and also international monetary agencies such as World Bank.
