Who will pay for REDD?

If you found the acronym REDD, which stands for  Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation, confusing, prepare yourself for a new one; REDD-Plus. Consuelo Espinosa, IUCN's Senior Forest and Climate Change Officer, explains what the terms means and examines how REDD-Plus financing will work. She says that if developed countries are going to foot the bill, developing countries must be prepared to prove exactly what the funding they received achieved.
