REDD needs more private sector involvement

01 October 2009 | Audio

Until now most of the work on REDD (Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation) is being led by the public sector and non-governmental organizations in particular. This has to change, according to Chris Knight, of PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP, who is involved in The Forests Dialogue, which IUCN helped develop. He says that REDD might not work if it is developed without significant input from the private sector.
