1. Indigenous Peoples and the Green Climate Fund – A technical briefing for Indigenous Peoples, policymakers and support groupsThis report was published to coincide with the first Board meeting of the Green Climate Fund (GCF) which took place in August 2012. It summarises some key issues relevant for indigenous peoples, building on statements and policy platforms adopted by Indigenous Peoples’ Caucuses. In particular the report draws attention to the need for the GCF to improve indigenous peoples’ participation in governance, adopt stronger safeguards and facilitate direct access to financing for climate change response actions developed and implemented by indigenous peoples.To read the report (in English only) visit: http://www.forestpeoples.org/topics/other-climate-related-institutions/publication/2012/new-publication-indigenous-peoples-and-gr 2.

A Guide to Indigenous Women’s Rights under the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against WomenIndigenous women around the world continue to suffer from systematic violations of their human rights. Not only as indigenous peoples but also as women. This updated Guide to Indigenous Women’s Rights under the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women is written to assist indigenous women in seeking recognition and protection of their human rights through the use of the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW). This Convention was adopted in 1979 and is one of the six core international human rights instruments. It is also one of the most widely ratified treaties with 187 member states as of May 2012.
