With this letter we aim to alert communities, activists, civil society groups and social movements of the diversion of funding by the international donor community to dubious schemes to “Reduce Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation and enhance forest carbon stocks”
(REDD+), which are being promoted within the framework of the United Nations Climate Convention.
The groups charge that climate policy makers are working with a flawed definition of “forests” that includes monocultures, Genetically Engineered trees and agrofuel plantations.
The No REDD Platform asks your support by signing on to the letter attached.
