dc.description.abstractThis paper will examine how this particular development project has carried out its goals of climate change mitigation activities and poverty alleviation through innovative measures, and if their approaches have proven to be effective. In short, Mi Bosque seeks to make our world a cleaner place while still helping to alleviate poverty. In the first section of this paper I will discuss the importance of the Purchasing for/of Environmental Services (PES) paradigm and background for the problem in the region. The second section will be an analysis of the Mi Bosque project according the qualitative data I collected for this study. The third section will give a summary and outlook for the future of projects such as Mi Bosque and their place in international development. In placing the Mi Bosque in the larger context of climate change mitigation we are able to examine the effects that one project is having on our world community and critically look at the individuals it is impacting.en_US
