The role of people in the landscape in meeting the Paris Agreement temperature targets Print

PANEL: 9 December 2018 15:00-15:30 | Katowice time (GMT+1) LIVESTREAM

How can all the issues discussed today bridge the science – calling for urgent action on climate change in the landscapes – with how people live and act on a daily basis? Key speakers will reflect on how we can ensure we meet Paris Agreement targets through the lens of rights, political accountability and collaboration. Perspectives from indigenous people, civil society and policy makers will help map out the steps we need to take together for successful and holistic climate mitigation.

Statement by Special Rapporteur on the rights of indigenous peoples to 70th session of the UN General Assembly Print


[New York, October 20, 2015.] "I have the honor to present today my second report to the General Assembly."
"I dedicate the thematic section of the present report to an analysis of international investment agreements and investment clauses of free trade regimes and their impacts on the rights of indigenous peoples.

"The present report also highlights my analysis of the unjust elements of the prevailing system of global economic and financial governance and the constriction of the protective capacity of States and local governance systems. It discusses how indigenous peoples, as some of the most marginalized in the world, bear a disproportionate burden of a system that contains systemic imbalances between the enforcement of corporate investors’ rights and human rights."
