REDD in Prey Long focuses on the linkages
between climate change, carbon and the world’s forests.
The film "REDD in Prey Long" follows the development of a forest-climate project in Cambodia, in which the Forestry Administration of Cambodia collaborates with researchers from Forest & Landscape and Conservation International in order to protect the last remaining lowland rainforest.
The project seeks to take over current logging concessions and finance the deal by sale of carbon credits. The movie answers questions like:
- How much carbon is stocked and sequestered by tropical forests?
- How can we measure it?
- How does it compare to carbon emissions in the Western World?
- What is the value of the forest on the international markets for carbon credits?
The film describes the challenges in designing a REDD project, which would benefit not only the climate but also local peoples’ livelihood and biodiversity conservation. Prey Long is home to many unique and threatened plants and animals and is a main watershed in Cambodia. An estimated 250.000 people are directly dependent on the forest for their livelihoods.
The film was developed by Ida Theilade and Lars Schmidt from Forest & Landscape in collaboration with Conservation International and Blue Moon Foundation. Script: Allan Michaud, Ida Theilade, Christine Tsang. Produced by Asian Images. For further nformation or copies of the DVD please contact Ida Theilade: .
