Tasmania REDD

This REDD project protects the native forests of Tasmania by making it more profitable for local people to engage in sustainable forest management practices than fell trees and degrade the land. In addition to preserving biodiversity (such as the endangered Tasmanian devil) and protecting the livelihoods of forest-dwelling communities, managing these forests in a sustainable way will also contribute significantly to preventing carbon emissions.
