2014-04-01 11:28 | By Maryanne Grieg-Gran, International Institute for Environment and Development, 31 March 2014 | If national and local REDD+ programmes close off land and resource use options for such communities, and do not include equitable systems to share benefits with them, the social consequences will be very negative.

A new study suggests such a strong signal from Europe could help avoid dangerous climate change –...
