If We Cannot Define It, We Cannot Save It: Forest Definitions and REDD.

Forest definitions are ambiguous. As a result, forest loss is often not officially counted as deforestation. Application of AFOLU accounting rules can bypass the need for clear definitions, reduce leakage and promote multifunctional landscapes in an equitable, efficient and effective way.
