I am in full agrement with the statement that effective rule of law in the Amazon is essential even to the functioning of REDD and mandatory for implementing a new paradigm for the global Tropics. Although we still lack substantial scientific evidence on the relative weight of renewed law enforcement efforts for the very significant decline in Brazilian Amazon deforestation rates in the last 5 years, it would be silly to ignore that it may have contributed a great deal to that reduction.
