Indigenous Peoples’ Rights Totally Excluded


WEBCAST OF PRESS CONFERENCE NOW AVAILABLE!! Click here.

  • Where: Room - Asger Jorn located in Hall H of the Bella Center
  • When: Tuesday, 8 December 2009 at 18:00 pm

 

INDIGENOUS PEOPLES from around the world condemn the texts proposed by the Danish Government on the basis that they totally exclude indigenous peoples’ rights on all key issues.

The International Indigenous Peoples Forum on Climate Change (IIPFCC) are made up of indigenous organizations from all regions of the world and are present here in Copenhagen. Indigenous Peoples are supposed to be at the centre of all climate change debates. This is because they have lived with and protected nature for generations and are now the worst affected by climate change effects like floods, typhoons, drought, violent thunderstorms etc. They have least contributed to this global disaster. The full and effective participation of indigenous peoples, local communities and vulnerable groups is therefore the key to achieve a just and equitable outcome of the climate negotiations.

Barcelona Climate Negotiations Civil Society Statement

November 6, 2009

At stake in the climate negotiations is the biggest distribution of wealth and resources between rich and poor countries in modern history. The rich are seeking to write-off rather than repay their debt for consuming the Earth’s atmospheric space.
