New Swedish Society for Nature Conservation report on REDD
Good new report – "New Hope for the Forest: REDD biodiversity and poverty reduction" – published by the Swedish Society for Nature Conservation (SSNC). Now available in English as electronic download.
The report provides a clear and concise overview and framing of the key controversial issues in relation to REDD, with a number of concrete action points directed to the Swedish government. Among other things, the report shows the many traps inherent in the system, and warns against any (future) linking to the market based solutions. The report also includes relevant extracts from many of the sources that are referred to in the text, making the publication a resource in itself.
