Brown's plan to save rainforests

Date : 13th October 2008, Source : BBC Link to News Story

A new global deal to protect the world's rainforests has been proposed in a report drawn up for Gordon Brown. The idea is part of a review into deforestation and green energy by Swedish businessman Johan Eliasch. The ex-Tory donor says cash put aside for carbon saving in rich countries should be transferred to nations with rainforests in need of protection. Rainforest destruction accounts for about a fifth of the carbon emissions blamed for fuelling climate change. Details of Mr Eliasch's plan are due to be announced on Tuesday.
