05.03.2008: Numerous NGOs welcome efforts by governments and other parties at the international, national and local levels to combat climate change and protect natural forests in the tropics and beyond. But the role of the World Bank is seriously questioned in this regard.

We believe that with an integrated sustainable development and rights-based approach, socially and environmentally sustainable REDD policies have the potential to bring about climate change mitigation, environmental conservation and social and livelihood benefits.
