REDD moves from forests to landscapes: More of the same, just bigger and with bigger risk to cause harm

landscape-REDD_thThis publication addresses a new version of REDD, known as ‘Landscape REDD’, which is just as much of a false solution to climate change as the original version. Landscape REDD is aimed at encompassing besides forests, agricultural fields and practices. This trend remains a top-down approach, and focuses on protecting and promoting agribusiness, to the detriment of indigenous peoples and peasant farmer communities.

Previously published as an article in the WRM Bulletin No. 204, the article aims to understand how Landscape REDD is the same idea as REDD, just bigger – and with the potential to do more harm.
