REDD in the Real World: A film Introducing REDD
Or watch the video in French or Portuguese or Spanish
In partnership with the International Conservation and Education Fund (INCEF), the Forum on Readiness for REDD has produced an innovative short film, that introduces the basic concepts of climate change, forest carbon and REDD. Narrated by former NPR host Alex Chadwick, REDD in the Real World uses the words and voices of those already involved in reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation (REDD) to elaborate the fundamental concepts and terminology that are pivotal to the issue.
Contained in the film are 28 different voices, from 18 countries representing seven languages, which introduce technical concepts that are critical to understanding REDD and participating in the national and international process. Topics discussed include the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), national and sub-national implementation, options for baseline scenarios, stakeholder engagement, financing mechanisms, and the differences between deforestation and forest degradation.
The film is available in English, French, Portuguese, Spanish, Vietnamese and Bahasa and is available for free for distribution to networks and communities wishing to learn more about REDD.
