Reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation (REDD+) is a scheme where governments, companies or forest owners are recompensed for not cutting down forests and the calculation is made as to the amount of carbon dioxide emissions saved. It has many critics as it has lead to forest peoples being evicted from their land while the main beneficiaries have been carbon traders.
REDD is designed to use market and financial incentives in order to reduce the emissions of greenhouse gases from deforestation and forest degradation. Its objective is to reduce greenhouse gases.

If the forests turn REDD – Enthusiasts say the REDD program is important because it ties forest preservation to the pressing issue of global climate change mitigation. But the detractors say it’s likely to be ineffectual at best; and at worst, could help fuel further corruption.
Forests and the future – Part Two – Future Tense looks at the rights of indigenous forest dwellers, remote sensing and spatial forest data, mapping the world’s remaining forests and the peculiar impact climate change has on boreal forests.
REDD is a scheme that encourages rich countries to pay poor developing nations to protect forests – so can it work? http://t.co/clSqz7VbfX
