The article focuses on a report on deforestation emission instruments, known as REDD-plus, from the Australian National University's Centre for Climate Law and Policy. Andrew Macintosh, author of the report, says that Australia will rely on reduced deforestation emission to meet the emission reduction target. Macintosh also said that if deforestation baselines are negotiated politically, there would be a risk for developing countries to generate credits that do not have reduction in emission.
