Submission on the Safeguards Information System PDF Print

 

Submission on Safeguard Information Systems (SIS) on the Types of Information on How the Safeguards are Being Addressed and Respected

Submission by Tebtebba (Indigenous Peoples’ International Centre for Policy Research and Education) Also on behalf of the Indigenous Peoples’ Global Partnership on Climate Change, Forests and Sustainable Development, 24 September 2014

This submission is in line with the consideration of SBSTA at its forty-­first session (December 2014), inviting the following:

  • Developing country Parties to submit to the secretariat, by 24 September 2014, their views on experiences and lessons learned from their development of systems for providing information on how all the safeguards are being addressed and respected and the challenges they face in developing such systems;
  • Parties and admitted observer organizations to submit to the secretariat, by 24 September 2014, their views on the type of information from systems for providing information on how the safeguards are being addressed and respected that would be helpful and that may be provided by developing country Parties.

 

This submission reiterates the Cancun Agreements wherein parties agreed to develop a robust and transparent national forest monitoring system for the monitoring and reporting of REDD Plus activities, including sub-­national monitoring and reporting as an interim measure. The establishment of a robust national forest monitoring system is meant to monitor and report on how developing States-­Parties are reducing their emissions from deforestation and forest degradation, conserving and enhancing forest carbon stocks and sustainably managing forests. Paragraph 71(d) of the Cancun Agreement further requests developing country Parties to develop a Safeguard Information System (SIS) for providing information on how the safeguards in the Cancun Agreement are being addressed and respected.

Indigenous women address critical role in combatting climate change PDF Print

 

As New Law Gutting the Land Rights of Peru’s Indigenous Peoples Passes, International Forum of Indigenous Women Presents Way Forward for Progress

More than 60 Indigenous Women from Across the World Come Together to Address their Critical Role in Combating Climate Change

Lima, Peru (16 July 2014)—At an international forum on community land and resource rights in Lima today, women from across the world called for inclusion of indigenous women’s perspectives and participation in the dialogue around national and international climate change adaption and mitigation policies.

These recommendations to ensure women’s rights and contributions are recognized were made by more than 60 indigenous women from 15 countries across Africa, Asia and Latin America and center on three issues: a) the effective participation of indigenous women communities in decision-making on climate change policy at the national and international level; b)the collective rights of women to land and forests; and c) the integration of indigenous women’s vision and management of natural resources in public policy.

UNFCCC REDD+ Negotiations: NCBs still on the table PDF Print

BY ALLISON SILVERMAN AND NIRANJALI AMERASINGHE

At a glance :

  • Non-Carbon Benefits (NCBs) occupied a good portion of the SBSTA discussions on REDD+.
  • Parties believe that NCBs are important to the long-term sustainability of REDD+ but strongly disagree about the need for any specific guidance for incentivizing such benefits.
  • Parties ultimately agreed to continue considering methodological issues next year at SBSTA’s 42nd session, providing the necessary space to discuss issues related to safeguard information systems at SBSTA’s next session in Peru.

 

WASHINGTON DC, United States (11 July, 2014) - In June 2014, the Subsidiary Body for Scientific and Technological Advice (SBSTA) of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) met for its 40th session to discuss a range of issues, including outstanding items related to Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD+).

Although UNFCCC Parties adopted the Warsaw REDD+ Framework last year, which is intended to capture all REDD+ decisions taken by the UNFCCC, a number of important issues remained open for further discussion. These included non-market-based approaches, non-carbon benefits (NCBs), and further guidance on safeguards information systems.

Statement of the Co-Chairs of the Global Transitional Committee of the FIP Dedicated Grant Mechanism for Indigenous Peoples and Local Communities (DGM)

FIP Subcommittee Meeting, Montego Bay Convention Center, Jamaica 28 June 2014

 

On behalf of the Indigenous Peoples and local communities (IPS/LCS), and as co-chair of the Global Transitional Committee of the DGM for IPs and LCs, I would like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude to be here at this FIP Subcommittee meeting.

We had pro-actively engaged with the World Bank over the years wherein we sincerely requested and worked together on this DGM as part of the FIP design. We recognize this as a great and important milestone and innovation within the overall CIF partnership with Indigenous Peoples and Local Communities. The CIF thru the FIP, has blazed the trail for accepting our direct engagement and providing this opportunity to follow through on the approval of this DGM. This had become one of the best practices between IPs/LCs and climate finance mechanisms.
