View Publication

Forest Trends, in collaboration with the national Amazonian indigenous organizations of Colombia (OPIAC), Ecuador (CONFENIAE) and Peru (AIDESEP), are carrying out studies and providing technical assistance aimed at preparing equitable and culturally relevant climate compensation proposals for indigenous people. These proposals are based on the multidimensional climate contributions of the indigenous territories and their will to comply with and increase the goals set forth by the Nationally Determined Commitments and the “climate ambition” demanded by the Paris Agreement. This document outlines the progress made, and corresponding perspectives, which will have an impact at the regional and international scale.
