Open Letter of Concern to the International Donor Community about the Diversion of Existing Forest Conservation and Development Funding to REDD+

The No REDD Platform has been collecting signatures from all over the world and would like to encourage other groups to support this initiative.

With this letter we aim to alert communities, activists, civil society groups and social movements of the diversion of funding by the international donor community to dubious schemes to “Reduce Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation and enhance forest carbon stocks” (REDD+), which are being promoted within the framework of the United Nations Climate Convention.
