New Report REDD26/01/2012: A new assessment report "Meeting the Challenges of International Forest Governance" suggests that global efforts have too often ignored local needs, while failing to address the most fundamental challenge to global forest management—that deforestation usually is caused by economic pressures imposed from outside the forests.

Unless all sectors work together to address the impact of global consumption, including growing demand for food and biofuels, and problems of land scarcity, REDD will fail to arrest environmental degradation and will heighten poverty. REDD's overriding focus on protecting and pricing the carbon stored in forests will lead to the further exclusion of indigenous peoples from their forests and the criminalization of their traditional livelihoods - says the press release from on the report by the IUFRO - International Union of Forest Research Organisations.

Here you can read the press release and download the full report and policy briefs in English, Spanish and French.
