Stopping the decimation of rainforests is unquestionably important to slowing climate change. But simply protecting forests often excludes and disenfranchises local communities. This week we’re talking about a different way of addressing this problem — a pairing of ecology with healthcare.

We're joined by three members of the research team that have studied ten years' of data to determine the impacts healthcare has on logging in Borneo.
