Building Natural Capital: How REDD+ Can Support a Green Economy
This report advocates placing REDD+ into a larger planning framework that should involve multiple influences (especially those driving deforestation, albeit sometimes inadvertently). This framework would go beyond forests to ultimately serve the needs of all sectors of society, e.g. agricultural, financial and urban. REDD+ would thereby add value to the many other initiatives that are being implemented within these sectors. No longer simply a pilot effort, REDD+ would take its place as a critical element in the drive for a Green Economy.
