Research reports

Written by Will McFarland, Charlene Watson

Research reports

This report, on the current status and future potential of REDD+, describes the many benefits of forests and other ecosystems as a way of demonstrating that forests have multiple values beyond carbon sequestration and indeed are a foundation for sustainable societies. In doing so it provides a summary of the elements necessary for integrating REDD+ into a green economy, providing policymakers with innovative ideas for supporting economic development while maintaining or increasing forest cover.
