Code REDD

REDD+ is an acronym for Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation.

The astounding fact is that deforestation, at roughly 15% of global annual greenhouse gas emissions, is pumping more CO2 into our atmosphere than the entire global transportation sector. Addressing the perverse economic incentives driving deforestation is widely recognized as a critical element to advancing comprehensive climate strategies.

That is why the United Nations created the REDD+ mechanism to quantify and value the carbon storage services that forests provide. By making forests more valuable standing than felled, REDD+ provides forest communities and developing countries with a NEW, sustainable, low-carbon pathway to economic growth.
