Friends of the Earth International, November 2010: When it comes to climate change, REDD is the couleur dujour. "Reducing Emissions from Deforestation in Developing Countries” holds out the enticing prospect of mitigating climate change, conserving threatened biodiversity, and bringing much-needed development finance to poor Indigenous Peoples and local forest-dwelling communities - at the same time as offering significant profits to investors.

Friends of the Earth United States, June 2010: This report examines the various, and often contradictory, roles played by the World Bank – a major climate polluter and driver of deforestation, an institution attempting to address climate change, a political tool used by developed countries in UN climate negotiations to maintain control over international climate finance, a supposed defender of developing country interests, and an institution asserting itself to capture as much short term (and, by extension, long term) climate finance as possible.
