Dr Julian Caldecott

Indonesia: the Carbon Nation – a talk on REDD

Julian Caldecott is an ecologist, author and consultant to governments, international organisations, businesses and charities. As Director of Creatura Ltd, one of his current roles is to lead the annual evaluation of the Indonesia-Norway REDD+ Partnership, a billion-dollar arrangement to prevent dangerous greenhouse gas emissions by saving rainforests and peatlands from destruction. In this film, Julian talks about what the first evaluation found on behalf of the Norwegian Government, and describes Indonesia’s struggle to become part of the solution to climate change and biodiversity loss, rather than a big part of the problem.
