Fighting Fossil Fuels First Making EU climate policy work for people and forests

This study refocuses attention on the need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions domestically, without offloading responsibilities onto other countries through offsets. It explores why forests cannot offset fossil fuel emissions; and recommends reorienting EU finance currently earmarked for forests more effectively on factors that drive deforestation - improved governance and enhanced tenure rights.
