REDD Realities in India: Will the forests and forest people survive?
November 25, 2010

EQUATIONS in partnership with Global Forest Coalition (GFC), with Mr.Souparna Lahiri, as Principal Researcher, in 2009-10 completed a brief study on the implications and impacts of strategies of Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD) on biodiversity and rights of forest communities in India.  REDD has raised deep concerns amongst the forest groups, movements and indigenous communities on the implications of REDD on the traditional rights of indigenous forest communities over land and resources, their culture, identity and livelihood.

With Government of India pushing strongly for REDD in United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCC), the concerns intensify. As an important step towards generating awareness, raising concerns and facilitating a discussion on the issue of REDD, we want to share the contours of the study with representatives of the forest movements and civil society with the specific objective of receiving responses to these issues. The major outcome expected from this discussion is to develop strategies to generate a campaign on the implications and impacts of REDD as a climate mitigation scheme on the forests and forest communities.
