Earlier this year, Gabon made history as the first African country to be paid to preserve its rainforest. Is this a funding model we should seek to replicate elsewhere? What other innovations can we introduce to cut more carbon and less wood? Is international diplomacy and collaboration, or local empowerment the best way forward? Who’s going to take responsibility? And who will pay?
