Research co-authored by Prof Andreas Kontoleon (see here (https://arxiv.org/abs/2301.03354) on the efficacy of carbon offsets appears in the Guardian (18/01/2023)). 

See Guardian article.

The research shows that most forest based carbon offset projects fail to reduce deforestation to the levels expected. Further work is needed to better define how deforestation baselines (and hence the volume of carbon credits sold) are determined.
