NO-REDD-front-page

Due to the UN climate negotiations -COP20- and the Peoples’ Summit on Climate Change, held in Lima, Peru, in December 2014, over 100 organizations and social movements made a Call to Action to strongly and collectively reject REDD+ and the ‘environmental services’ – towards the COP21 in Paris, France, in December 2015.

With this Call we want to make clear that these mechanisms are a central part of our struggle against capitalism and extractive industries and for the defense of territories and life.

Therefore, we ask your organization, group, network or movement to join the call and support communities in resistance who warn us of the dangers of these mechanisms. The call is available in: English, Spanish, Portuguese and French.

To support the call, we ask to fill the form below, or send an email to [NoREDDCop20@wrm.org.uy] with the name of your group, the country or region of your work and your contact.
