About the Authors
  • This book provides a comprehensive socio-legal examination of how global efforts to fight climate change by reducing carbon emissions in the forestry sector (known as REDD+) have affected the rights of indigenous peoples and local communities in developing countries. Grounded in extensive qualitative empirical research conducted globally, the book shows that the transnational legal process for REDD+ has created both serious challenges and unexpected opportunities for the recognition and protection of indigenous and community rights. It reveals that the pursuit of REDD+ has resulted in important variations in how human rights standards are understood and applied across multiple sites of law in the field of REDD+, with mixed results for indigenous peoples and local communities in Indonesia and Tanzania. With its original findings, rigourous research design, and interdisciplinary analytical framework, this book will make a valuable contribution to the study of transnational legal processes in a globalizing world. This title is also available as Open Access.

    • Explores the opportunities as well as the challenges that REDD+ has created for the protection of human rights in developing countries
    • Provides comprehensive analysis of the implications of REDD+ for the rights of indigenous peoples and local communities
    • Original findings developed through extensive fieldwork provide new insights for those working on the intersections of REDD+ and rights
    • This title is also available as Open Access
