Linking Clean Cooking and REDD+

Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD) is an effort to create a financial value for the carbon stored in forests, offering incentives for developing countries to reduce emissions from forested lands and invest in low-carbon paths to sustainable development. Presenters in this session will discuss recent research into the relationship between woodfuel consumption and land use/land cover changes, and the role of woodfuel interventions in REDD+ programs. The discussions will cover issues currently being examined over a range of geographies and will review several novel methodologies that have been developed to assess woodfuel sustainability.
