It would be helpful to align the several sustainability approaches captured by the project stratgegy with information from DRAWDOWN (dot org), a compendium of climate change solutions.  Prevention of deforestation is shown to have a high greenhouse gas reduction potential.  I like the economic model tied to environmental benefits this project will establish!

Dear John,

Thank you very much for taking up the time to read through our proposal and for highlighting one of the down to earth books about solving pragmatically climate challenges our team have read in Ecotropics Insights and Book Jams.  This Book Jams is a weekly meeting workspace we created with our team and partners to discuss books related to our scope of work.  Indeed, this book became a blueprint for climate resilient work  to our organization.  Our team agrees 100% with you about aligning Drawdown work about  prevention of deforestation in the fine-tuning of our proposal to head to MIT COLab finals.  We believe in a climate development  realm from the basement to the Ivory towers, where bottom up approaches meets top down initiatives; and coexist to the best of the greater good.  We will keep you posted once we release our enhanced project description. To learn more 

The Ecotropics Team.
