Reducing Emission from Deforestation and forest Degradation a.k.a. REDD recently become popular and has been taught by many trainers in various place. Basically, it is a strategy which provides a carbon-trade mechanism to reduce forest conversion along with carbon emission produced from forest logging, although it is difficult to achieve realistic results on the field. The scope of REDD actions include reducing forest conversion, conserving biodiversity, and considering the rights of local forest communities.
