Law, Tropical Forests and Carbon: The Case of REDD+

2 May 2013

This new book, co-edited by Professor Rosemary Lyster, with contributions by Associate Professor Simon Butt and Associate Professor Tim Stephens, sheds light on the complexity of Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation (REDD+).

Law, Tropical Forests and Carbon: The Case of REDD+, edited with Dr Catherine MacKenzie from Cambridge University and Constance McDermott from Oxford University, 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 offers perspectives on the extent to which REDD+ agreements can be enforced under international law in concert with new private and public domestic institutions.
