Moving Ahead with REDD: Issues, Options and Implications

The publication of a new book, Moving Ahead with REDD: Issues, Options and Implications was supported by the Norwegian government in order to facilitate progress of the unfccc negotiations on this important issue. Erik Solheim, Minister of Environment and International Development of Norway, described the value of “clarifying options associated with each issue- and their implications for effectiveness, efficiency and equity”. Robert O’Sullivan peer reviewed the book and Charlotte Streck contributed to two chapters: “What is the right scale for REDD” (Chap 4) and “How do we match country needs and financing sources” (Chap 5). The book was published by CIFOR and released at the cop in Poznan in December 2008.
