UNEP releases report on intergrating REDD+ into Green Economy Approaches

An investment of US $30 billion per year, which is under 7% of the US $480 billion paid in annual global fossil fuel subsidies, in the REDD+ forest conservation initiative can accelerate the global transition to green and sustainable growth and ensure the long-term well being of tens of millions in developing countries– stated the United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP) of a new report they released today.

The report also outlines how integrating REDD+ programs into a Green Economy approach can conserve and even boost the economic and social benefits forests provide to human society.
