Rights Lab researchers have demonstrated a correlation between the incidence of modern slavery and tree loss. The research showed that in communities where deforestation occurs, different forms of modern slavery often also take place. In light of these findings, the Rights Lab’s Modern Slavery Evidence Unit released a research briefing with recommendations to incorporate anti-slavery policy and praxis into environmental conservation efforts. Specifically, the briefing is geared towards the UN’s “Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation” (REDD+) programme, as many of the programme’s goals overlap with those guiding anti-slavery policy and practice. The two-page briefing is available here.
