What are the key challenges facing REDD implementers and policymakers over the coming months? The Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR) canvassed some of the worlds most influential thinkers on forests and climate change for their thoughts.
For more insight into the REDD challenges join us at Forest Day 4 in Cancún, Mexico. This event will take place on 5 December 2010 alongside the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change 16th Conference of the Parties.
Forest Day 4 aims to bring together a wide range of stakeholders and world leaders to discuss new challenges and issues arising from the implementation of REDD+ and adaptation schemes to alleviate climate change.
