The destruction of tropical forests causes up to 20% of the world’s annual global warming emissions, and creates economic hardship for the indigenous people who depend on those forests to survive. Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD) is an approach championed by EDF that can establish economic incentives for tropical forest conservation.

Discover how REDD is not only safeguarding the environment and the livelihood of people in Brazil and Indonesia, but why it’s good news for the economy of California and other places closer to home.
