Indigenous Peoples Strategize Next Steps to Ensure Just Climate Policy

WHEN: Wednesday, December 16, 2009 at 6:00 - 6:30pm
WHERE: Asger Jorn Room, located in Hall H of the Bella Center

As the climate negotiations wind down, indigenous peoples are still fighting for the recognition of their rights in the final outcomes of COP15. Over the past two weeks, indigenous peoples have been working to ensure all potential climate policies and actions – from mitigation and adaptation to emissions reductions targets to finance mechanisms – ensure recognition of and respect for the rights of indigenous peoples.

The International Indigenous Peoples Forum on Climate Change (IIPFCC) is hosting a press conference to reflect on their work in Copenhagen and share their strategy for ensuring that these interests are met as climate policy moves forward.
