UN's forest protection scheme at risk from organised crime, experts warn

Date : 5th October 2009, Source : The Guardian (UK)

The UN, the World Bank, the UK and individuals including Prince Charles have strongly backed UN plans to expand the global carbon market to allow countries to trade the carbon stored in forests.
