We all know that the best approach to tackling climate breakdown is protecting rainforest and reducing emissions.
Effective conservation is only possible when local people who are uniquely suited to manage, protect, and restore rainforest are put first.
It’s increasingly clear. If we are to adequately tackle climate breakdown, and protect Earth’s environment, we must promote and protect the rights of the world’s indigenous populations.
Recognising the achievements and contributions made by indigenous peoples to conservation, land stewardship and climate mitigation is essential.
