Making Contact - Saving or Selling the Planet? REDD, Climate Change and Indigenous Lands

Around the world communities are already facing the impacts of climate change.  Now international organizations, like the World Bank, are pushing a policy that asks polluters to offset their pollution by paying governments to protect forests.  But is it working?  On this edition, we take a closer look at this policy and ask, is it a plan to save the planet, or just sell it off? We’ll hear from indigenous activists and extracts from “A Darker Shade of Green: REDD Alert and the Future of Forests” by Jeff Conant, narrated by Dania Cabello.  A Darker Shade of Green: REDD Alert and the Future of Forests is a production of the Global Justice Ecology Project and Global Forest Coalition.

Featuring:

Anne Petermann, Global Justice Ecology Project director; Pavan Sukhdev, UN Environment Programme’s Green Economy Initiative  former head; Robert Zoellick, World Bank president; Gustavo Castro, Otros Mundos director; Osmarino Amancio Rodriguez, Rubber Tapers Union of Acre  president; Elder Andrade de Paula, Federal University of Acre professor; Leticia Yawanawa, Union of Indigenous Women of the Brazilian Amazon; Alegría De La Cruz, Center on Race, Poverty & the Environment attorney; Henry Clarke, West County Toxics Coalition director; Tom Goldtooth, Indigenous Environmental Network executive director.
