REDD+: “Chile is committed to reforest 200,000 ha of forest”

Interview with Heidi Böttcher about REDD+

Deforestation is the second most important cause of global warming and is responsible for about 15% of global greenhouse gas emissions. This is precisely where the REDD+ project comes in: It represents the efforts of countries to reduce emissions from deforestation and forest degradation.
