ABSTRACT
The article discusses the significance of Reducing Emissions from tropical Deforestation and Degradation (REDD) scheme in reducing carbon dioxide emissions worldwide. Such issue has been strongly debated by policymakers and non-governmental officers (NGO) since 2005. Experts see the importance of forests in managing global warming, thus authorities are formulating ways of mitigating deforestration and forest degradation. Studies show that forests are important in managing global warming because it can absorb carbon dioxide and encounter emissions while deforestation releases carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. REDD as an tool in enticing countries to join more fully in the fight against global warming. Presented are the details of REDD.
