As someone who works in reforestation and ecosystem restoration, I understand that working to combat global deforestation is the first and most important step to doing that. I am also well aware that some anti-deforestation measures are more effective than others. So I was fascinated to read a new and comprehensive scientific report assessing global methods to fight deforestation.

A Helpful New Report

This report, prepared by the Global Forest Expert Panels (GFEP) Programme led by the International Union of Forest Research Organizations (IUFRO), was presented in a webinar during World Forestry Congress week in early May. It analyzes the work of REDD+, a global action plan developed by the United Nations.

REDD+ stands for “reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation,” and the plan aims to guide sustainable forest management and conservation, and to enhance forest carbon stocks in low- and middle-income countries.

The report seeks to inform ongoing policy discussion on the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, and it highlights both successes and shortcomings in performance of this program over the past ten years. It takes a look at analyses and scientific information published and lessons learned; and it gives us crucial information about what works and what does not as we continue to fight against global deforestation.
