The right to carbon, the right to land, the right to decide

Climate Focus Director Charlotte Streck wrote on the issue of “forest carbon rights” in a blog post which was published by Ecosystem Marketplace as part of the “Shades of REDD” series.

This story is part of a continuing series called “Shades of REDD+”, which is a companion to the intermittent series “Forests, Farms, and the Global Carbon Sink“.
