Forest Day!

Takeaways of today's panel on Drivers of deforestation and implications for incentive schemes:

REDD needs to support:
capacity building
emissions reductions from D&D
institution building
policies and measures to improve governance, equity, and social development

Doing this helps reduce risk, gives REDD more credibility, involves more stakeholders, and helps make REDD projects more stable investments.

Here's to hoping that COP13 can produce a roadmap for REDD and prompt immediate, effective action!
