Steve Taylor interviews photojournalist Orin Langelle about a United Nations and World Bank sponsored program called “reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation” (REDD). Langelle reflects on his part in documenting a community’s resistance to a forced relocation from Amador Hernandez in the Lacandon Jungle in 2011. The relocation was to be part of an agreement between the states of California and Chiapas Mexico as part of a REDD agreement.

Langelle's reporting was central to the ground-breaking video A Darker Shade of Green: REDD Alert and the Future of Forests.
