Forest Peoples Programme (alongside partner organisations) has published three new publications; ‘Indigenous Peoples and the Green Climate Fund – A technical briefing for Indigenous Peoples, policymakers and support groups’, the third edition of ‘What is REDD+? A guide for indigenous communities’ and the second edition of ‘A Guide to Indigenous Women’s Rights under the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women’.
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.
Draft Rio+20 proposed outcomes document a mixed bag: UNDRIP is acknowledged and some positive elements are likely to be secured on traditional knowledge, but other outcomes lack vital and much needed commitments on FPIC and other rights, while the text on forests ignores indigenous peoples and suffers from weak and possibly harmful language.
