Conflict and Cooperation over REDD

Reduced Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD) is an effective approach to address climate change. But questions over how forests should be managed to balance economic and environmental priorities can lead to conflict. This program investigates instances of conflict in Mexico, Vietnam and Nepal with the aim of developing tools and approaches that can be used globally to promote cooperation and conflict resolution. The project is funded by the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research, the UK’s Department for International Development and the Conflict and Cooperation in the Management of Climate Change Fund.
