Climate Change is not new to the Planet previously be it warming or cooling resulting from mass volcanic eruptions inhibiting the Sun reaching the Earth's surface. over the past 300 years mass anthropogenic land clearing resulted in expanding desertification. The desert still is the prime source of CO2e (equivalent) emissions. The resultant compounding issue is 3.5 billion people live in poverty and most on desert nations fighting for or migrating to a better sustainable life. Well planned based upon established science and proven operations reversing deserts to grow soil soil-carbon food fodder and in time forestry with native vegetation that meets UNFCCC 100yr rule at low cost modern industries can offset their CO2e emission with micro cost flow on but their Page 3 annual reports can state they are contributors to aiding "developing world nation" to grow food fodder. The compounding bonus is the people in developing nations will need to buy tractors tools schools hospital and homes. Hence well planned a global bottom up Banking recovery RovertVincin

On Friday, September 19, John Kerry, the US Secretary Of State, announced the launch of the Global Resilience Challenge. The Challenge is a three-stage grant competition focused on developing and implementing locally driven, high-impact solutions that build resilience in three focal regions: the Horn of Africa, the Sahel and South & Southeast Asia. Learn more at In the first stage of the Global Resilience Challenge, diverse, cross-sector teams will assemble and submit proposals that demonstrate a locally-driven understanding of the barriers to building resilience in their focal region. Teams that advance to the second stage will receive up to $200,000 to further develop their problem statement and to develop a bold, innovative, scalable solution and implementation plan. And in the third and final stage, teams who have built the most promising solutions will receive initial funding on the order of $1 million to implement their transformative proposal--turning their ideas into reality. The Challenge guidelines and FAQ can be downloaded at Follow us on twitter: @GRP_resilience And promote us w/ a tweet like this one: How will you build #resilience? Check out @GRP_resilience's #challenge for teams to build bold, innovative solutions Team up. Collaborate. Join the Challenge.

Just a quick update -- The Natural Resilience Fund has been actively involved in helping plan, develop and finance The BIG U project in lower Manhattan. This project has been awarded $335 million through HUD's Rebuild by Design competition. The project is now in pre-development with the first Compartment being from Montgomery Street to 23rd Street on the east side of Manhattan (a 1.8 mile stretch). The entire project, which we are advocating to be planned in totality stretches 10 miles of waterfront and is anticipated to be a $4 billion+ project.
