Major win for forests at climate meeting
details on a mechanism (known as REDD+) to reduce emissions from deforestation and forest degradation. REDD+ will reward countries for keeping carbon stored in forests. The agreement includes rules for measuring and verifying forest carbon, and safeguards to protect biodiversity and the rights and knowledge of indigenous peoples and local communities. WWF now calls for guaranteed finance for REDD+, and that REDD+ be part of the Paris climate deal.
