Side Event: Amazonian Indigenous Peoples an Indigenous REDD + Proposals: Dialogue between COICA and States
Wednesday 7 December.
Room: HLUHLUWE RIVER SIDE EVENT
• Indigenous people of the Amazon identify and question the inconsistencies of REDD+ and propose an alternative, the Indigenous REDD+ system, in order to effectively reduce the environmental and global climate crisis without the commercialization of nature.
• This event will include discussions with the delegates of the governments of Norway and Switzerland and UN-REDD officials about the alternatives proposed by the indigenous people of the Amazon.
• Through the territories and whole life plans of Amazonia Indigenous Peoples, the planet can begin to cool. This plan will require a restructuring of territories, increasing self-determination, stopping the actions of “Carbon Cowboys” and the carbon credit market.
