(REDD Monitor, May 1, 2012) A new animated film about REDD (Reduce Emissions from Deforestation and forest Degradation) was launched yesterday at the annual meeting of the Forest Movement Europe in Portugal.
“This film attempts to explain the key issues in a simple to understand way,” says Wolfgang Kuhlmann of ARA, one of the seven NGOs that produced the film.
“Global deforestation cannot be solved without addressing the over-consumption that drives deforestation,” Kuhlmann adds.
In addition to ARA, six NGOs were involved in producing the film: Amis de la Terre, Euronatura, FERN, Forest Peoples Programme, Iroko, Pro-Regenwald, Rainforest Foundation UK and Terra!* The video is also available in French and Spanish.
