REDD may not be enough to save Sumatra's endangered lowland rainforests

Date : 24th November 2009, Source : Mongabay

The study highlights the contradiction between the Ulu Masen conservation project; which involves Flora and Fauna International, Bank of America, and Australia-based Carbon Conservation, a carbon trading company and the continuing road expansion, and establishment of oil palm plantations in the region.
