At the Bonn 2015 Climate Change Conference, Forest Peoples Programme (FPP) and Tebtebba held the side event 'Deforestation, Climate Finance and the Rights of Indigenous Peoples: the cases of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and the Green Climate Fund (GCF).’
In this video by IISD Reporting Services, the event panelists discuss the need for the Green Climate Fund and upcoming UNFCCC decisions to adopt a rights-based approach to climate change. Panelists also discuss the drivers of deforestation in the DRC and gave examples of eviction of indigenous peoples from their land.
