IUFRO came up with a new study about REDD. It's an impressive pack of information and a lots of background info.
And of course people immediately started to interpret their own thoughts and ideas on the "results" of this study.
Here is an overview of what people are reading out of the study:
- Forests: REDD or dead? (Richard Black, BBC)
- UN forest protection plans failing because of land scarcity and demand for food (Tom Levitt, The Ecologist)
- To succeed, REDD should consider factors outside forest sector (Mongabay)
- UN climate plans said too narrow to save forests (Reuters, Alister Doyle)
NEVERTHELESS: I can just give you the hint to read the study by yourself and make your own opinion out of it...
