As policies and programs to Reduce Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation (REDD) and to enhance forest carbon stocks (REDD+) are promoted around the world by global and national elites, Indigenous Peoples and other forest-dependent communities are raising the alarm that these programs will have serious negative impacts -- and will not reduce the cascading threats of the climate crisis.
This critical 28-minute documentary, introducing concerns about REDD from the perspective of the people who are most impacted, is available from Global Justice Ecology Project and Global Forest Coalition.
