A Darker Shade of Green: REDD and the Future of Forests (Trailer)

Climate Connections
January 12, 2012

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.

Soon to be released, this critical 28-minute documentary, introducing concerns about REDD from the perspective of the people who are most impacted, was co-produced by Global Justice Ecology Project and Global Forest Coalition.
