Durban Group for Climate Justice
| Tuesday, 20 July 2010
Affiliates from the Durban Group for Climate Justice request urgent solidarity in a statement rejecting schemes for Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD). The REDD Statement recognizes the need to support the growing voices opposing REDD and REDD-like projects and draws attention to the dangers of REDD including land grabs and the inclusion of REDD in the carbon market.
No REDD! No REDD Plus!
Global Sign-On Campaign against Schemes for Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation
As part of a mounting global civil society criticism of the ineffective and unjust solutions to climate change – including carbon trading and geoengineering – representatives of peoples’ movements and independent organizations oppose the schemes for Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD) currently being formulated under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change – and already piloted in schemes such as the World Bank’s Forest Carbon Partnership Facility and the United Nations REDD Programme.
