REDD and Beyond: International and Indigenous Strategies in Forest Protection
REDD is one a series of incentive-based mechanisms for reducing greenhouse gas emissions. In addition to REDD, and partly out of criticism to it, a number of further political and financial instruments for forest protection in Latin America have emerged over the last years. But how effective are these various instruments with regard to forest protection? How socially inclusive are they with respect to indigenous communities and other vulnerable forest users?
In a joint side-event by Lund University and the NGO Climate Alliance, experts and stakeholders address these questions for several Latin American countries, including the Peru, the host country of this year’s UN climate change conference. Apart from colleagues from the department of political science (Fariborz Zelli, Tobias Nielsen), our speakers include representatives of the Peruvian environmental ministry, forest protection NGOs, indigenous associations and German development agencies.
