Abstract

[Extract] To make tropical forests more resilient to climate change, we need a coordinated effort to refocus conservation tools at regional and international levels.

The tools include expansion of protected areas, control of fires, and application of REDD policy ('reduced emissions from deforestation and forest degradation'). The latter is intended to protect forest carbon but lacks explicit mechanisms for increasing forest resilience.
