Meridian Institute

Commission on Climate and Tropical Forests

Related: Climate Change

To support domestic US activities to educate decision makers about the importance of tropical forest carbon and Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and forest Degradation (REDD) in US policy development, Meridian worked in close coordination with Packard Foundation staff and others to convene and facilitate a Commission on Climate and Tropical Forests. This bipartisan Commission included 15 leaders from the private sector and the NGO community, in addition to former elected and appointed government officials. The Commission released a final report in October 2009 that can be found at www.climateforestscommission.org.
