This video explores the impacts of the UN's REDD programme on indigenous resources and lifestyles. The indigenous film-makers assert that market-based approaches to climate change are at odds with the traditional lifestyles and belief systems of indigenous peoples, and that through such programs, governments around the world will assert ownership over the forests inhabited by indigenous communities leading to landlessness and increased loss of bio-cultural diversity. Facilitated by: indigenous activists from fifteen distinct indigenous communities from eight different countries across the Asia Pacific region.
