[Extract] O. Venter et al. ("Harnessing carbon payments to protect biodiversity," Brevia, 4 December 2009, p. 1368) demonstrate that careful targeting of reduced emissions from deforestation and degradation (REDD) funds can double biodiversity benefits while incurring only a small reduction (4 to 8%) in carbon benefits. However, they do not address whether this win-win solution would still be tenable if objectives were extended to include protection of biodiversity under future climates.
