RFF panel explores relationship between climate change and deforestation

As the head of the United Nations tours South America this week to see, first hand, the relationship between climate change and deforestation, discussions on the topic are beginning to heat up both domestically and internationally. How can future climate treaties address this issue? And what impact could it have on developing countries? During today's E&ETV Event Coverage of a Resources for the Future panel discussion, participants take a look at the intersection of climate and deforestation. Panelists include, Annie Petsonk, international counsel for Environmental Defense, Kevin Conrad, director of the Coalition for Rainforest Nations, Raymond Kopp, senior fellow at Resources for the Future, and William Hohenstein, director of the Global Climate Change Program Office at the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
