A day in the life of a carbon credit for reduced deforestation
There is broad domestic and international support to include the policy approach called Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD) in climate policy. Allowing credit for deforestation reductions within climate legislation can significantly reduce the costs of a U.S. climate program. It is also a powerful way to get major emitting developing countries to make their own emissions reduction commitments.
