John Bryson, President Obama’s nominee to head the Commerce Department, told a UN energy conference in 2009 that a global wealth redistribution program was needed to keep poor people in developing countries from using their own forest resources.
“What we’ve got to do is find ways to map out the affected lands, to develop plans for addressing them, find economic models in which the people who are driven to do these things to try to raise the livelihoods of their families, find alternative means,” Bryson said in laying out his vision for stopping people in poor countries from cutting down forests.
“Training of peoples, to maybe help in supporting this, development of law enforcement regimes, development of strong governance practices, all of those things have to be done,” Bryson continued.
Bryson said that establishing things such as a global forestry law enforcement regime would require substantial “investments” on the part of wealthier countries so that the international community could better control how poor countries use their forest resources.
“All those things require, among other things, very substantial financial investments,” he said. “And those financial investments as a practical matter will need to come from the wealthier nations and peoples of the world. And that seems to me right, and proper, and the thing that needs to be done.”
