A guide to using CEDAW to defend and protect the rights of indigenous women, published by the Asian Indigenous Women's Network (AIWN), Tebtebba Foundation and the Forest Peoples Programme.
The 3rd edition of 'What is REDD+? A guide for indigenous communities' is now available here. This book seeks to help indigenous communities and their organisations to provide their people with basic information on REDD+. It is intended as a guide in understanding climate change, REDD+ and how they relate to the recognition and exercise of the collective rights of indigenous peoples.
Indigenous peoples called on the immediate implementation of the safeguards on REDD Plus. In a press conference a day before the end of the Durban Climate Change Conference, indigenous peoples belonging to the International Indigenous Peoples’ Forum on Climate Change (IIPFCC) called on state-parties for human rights to be central in any agreement on climate change.
