ABSTRACT
The article reports on the experiment called Reducing Emissions From Deforestation and Forest Degradation which is being piloted in countries worldwide. The idea behind the experiment is that businesses or governments in wealthy countries compensate those in the developing world for preserving their forests either by making payments into a fund or by buying credits on carbon markets. The link between protecting tropical forests and climate change mitigation is also discussed.
