A modest proposal for wealthy countries to reforest their land for the common good

A modest proposal for wealthy countries to reforest their land for the common good

We discuss a recent press release calling on wealthy countries to do more to combat climate change and protect their biodiversity. We examine some further examples of how questionable views are imposed unilaterally on conservation problems. Until we better engage with local perspectives we shall be less credible and less effective as conservationists.
