Indigenous Peoples Across the Globe Voice Fear from Frontlines of Extreme Weather: Experiences from Africa, Asia and Latin America Suggest Danger to Millions, if Global Community Fails to Help Vulnerable Regions Cope with Climate Change

----

In the wake of Typhoon Haiyan, which left thousands dead and devastated central Philippines, the country’s indigenous peoples—most of whom are located in isolated, forested communities—are emerging as among the worst hit. The indigenous Tagbanwa community of Coron and Taran islands, for example, lost lives, homes and boats—their primary means of transport and income.

According to the latest Global Climate Risk Index, 530,000 people died from 15,000 extreme weather events over the last two decades. Due to their remote locations, indigenous peoples are often severely impacted by these storm—and cut off from relief efforts. In the Philippines, there are eight Tagbanwa settlements that have yet to be reached due to lack of communications and transportation.

IP Proposals for REDD+ Partnership PDF Print

 

Thank you co-chairs and distinguished parties delegates, for this opportunity to speak on behalf of indigenous peoples.

We would like to acknowledge last month’s decision of the REDD+ Partnership to allocate funding for the representation of indigenous peoples and local communities at partnership meetings until the end of 2014. This will facilitate the articulation of indigenous peoples’ issues and concerns from the ground. The regional caucuses of indigenous peoples shall undergo the self-selection process and inform about their representatives to the partnership.

Indigenous Peoples must be represented in REDD+ Partnership PDF Print

 

10 October 2013 -- Indigenous peoples should have a permanent representative in a partnership of 75 countries that aims to decrease the global carbon footprint through reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation (REDD+).

Asia- and Australia-based members of the REDD+ Safeguards Working Group (R-SWG), a North-South coalition of civil society and indigenous peoples' organizations, today issued the call for indigenous peoples (IP) to be granted full partner status in the REDD+ Partnership, a global platform for countries to scale up actions and finance for REDD+ initiatives, during its first-ever meeting in Indonesia, in Palangka Raya, Central Kalimantan, 8-11 October.

“The REDD+ Partnership – and the international community -- are missing an opportunity to learn lessons from the ground on the participation of and respect for the rights of indigenous peoples,” said Stephen Leonard, president of the Climate Justice Programme. “A decision to financially support this participation would be particularly meaningful at this meeting in Central Kalimantan following the recent Constitutional Court decision guaranteeing customary rights to extensive forests across the archipelago."

Report of the IP Global Dialogue with FCPF PDF Print

The Indigenous Peoples’ Global Dialogue with the Forest Carbon Partnership Facility (FCPF) held in Doha, Qatar, on 10-11 December 2012, was one of a series of meetings held to address indigenous peoples’ concerns with the FCPF and global initiatives for the reduction of emissions from deforestation and forest degradation (REDD+). It was the culmination of three regional dialogues with indigenous peoples from Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean, and Asia-Pacific, held in Arusha, Lima and Chiang Mai respectively in 2012.

The global dialogue brought together indigenous participants from Africa, Asia-Pacific, and Latin America and the Caribbean; FCPF and World Bank staff; representatives from the UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues and UN-REDD; representatives of governments participating in the FCPF, whether as implementors or donors; and representatives.
