The Durban Declaration against REDD

PeA_DurbanThe Global Coalition Against REDD in alliance with the No REDD in Africa Network (NRAN) and supported by many international organizations launched a Declaration at the Civil Society Alternative Programme to the World Forestry Congress, which was held in Durban, South Africa, in early September. The Declaration states “to reject top-down forms of development, including false solutions to climate change and forest and biodiversity conservation that only serve the dominant market economy” and demands governments, the United Nations and financial institutions “to stop the disastrous REDD+ experiment and finally start addressing the underlying causes of forest loss and climate change!”
