Law, Tropical Forests and Carbon: The Case of REDD+
ACCEL are pleased to announce a new book by Rosemary Lyster, Catherine MacKenzie, Constance McDermott (eds) Law, Tropical Forests and Carbon: The Case of REDD+ (Cambridge University Press: 2013).
Emerging from the scientific parameters underpinning Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation (REDD+) (including the measurement of carbon stocks, reporting and verification), the book considers the crucial challenges for global and national governance and the legal rights and interests of indigenous people and local communities, all of which have fundamental implications for development and poverty alleviation. With contributions from leading experts in the fields of law, governance, sciences, development studies and geography, it sheds light on the complexity of REDD+ and offers perspectives on the extent to which REDD+ agreements can be enforced under international law in concert with new private and public domestic institutions.
