Forest schemes need to cover more ground

October 2009
ENDS (Environmental Data Services);Oct2009, Issue 417, p26
The article reports on the need for a pilot project aimed at reducing global warming emissions from deforestation and degradation (REDD) in Indonesia to cover more ground in order to be more effective based on a study. The project is expected to generate carbon credits of about 3.4 million tonnes per year. David Gaveau of the University of Kent, England and colleagues estimated that the project would save 130,000 hectares (ha) of forest, but 790,000 ha would remain lost outside it.
