ITTO Provides REDD Projects Overview

Tropical Timber Market Report 4 August 2008: The latest issue of Tropical Timber Market

Report, a publication of the International Tropical Timber Organization (ITTO),

provides an overview of carbon markets and reducing emissions from

deforestation and degradation (REDD). In addition to highlighting

climate-related forest experiences in several ITTO producer and consumer

countries, this issue discusses the potential contribution of the carbon market

to offsetting carbon emissions and how forest-related activities could

potentially be included in a post-2012 climate regime.

It also draws attention to potential risk management

techniques that could be used by participating entities in forest carbon

trading that would allow for widely accessible, equitable and efficient forest

carbon markets. [The Report]
