ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the concept of offering developing nations an incentive to control deforestation as a significant step toward achieving net emissions reductions in the developing world. It examines the possible impediments to crediting efforts to control deforestation such as additionality, leakage, permanence, and monitoring. It notes the existing proposals to credit developing nations for slowing the emissions from deforestation including the European Commission Joint Research Centre proposal and the compensated reductions plan. It also introduces the Hybrid Compensated Reductions and Preventive Credits plan which offers an incentive to control deforestation rates by providing the necessary financial support to execute and maintain reductions through carbon credit trading.
