The UN’s International Initiative of Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD+) has enabled wide comparative research on forestry in global climate change. In this book, an international team of authors who are deeply committed to this initiative provide the first comprehensive account of the mutual influence of deforestation and climate change in various areas throughout the countries of Asia. The authors also report on the policies and programs embarked on by local governments and inhabitants to maintain sustainable forest usage and their implications for fair trade, biological diversity, and environmental preservation.
