Abstract

This chapter entails a climate justice–led and multiscalar analysis of the emerging Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD+) policy regime. Based on empirical research, the conceptions of climate justice which underpin and justify the discourse and practices of actors in the Norwegian-Ethiopian REDD+ partnership are critically assessed and examined. In analysing REDD+ through a climate justice lens, the research questions the extent to which REDD+ can form part of a just transition to low-carbon societies and investigates the potential conflicts between forest conservation and poverty alleviation in REDD+.
