A report by Indigenous Environmental Network, Global Justice Ecology Project, World Rainforest Movement, ETC Group and Carbon Trade Watch exposes how REDD does nothing to solve the climate crisis and can severely aggravate social and environmental problems (link). The publication contains several case-studies showing the reality of REDD pilot programs and how it significantly departs from the rosy description given by the World Bank and other financial institutions.

NO REDD!: A Reader - a collection of articles written by REDD Monitor, Global Justice Ecology Project, Diego Alejandro Cardona, Tatiana Roa Avendaño, Honduran Garifuna Organization, World Rainforest Movement, Carbon Trade Watch, Brihannala Morgan, ETC Group and Indigenous Environmental Network.
