The Green Climate Fund Readiness and Indigenous Peoples PDF Print

THE CASES OF PERU, NICARAGUA, KENYA, DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF CONGO AND VIETNAM

Indigenous peoples are among those that are affected the most by climate change and at the same time those that have contributed and can actively contribute positive solutions to mitigation and adaptation. They have done so throughout the centuries, managing and ensuring the integrity of the ecosystems upon which their survival—physical and spiritual—strongly depends upon.

Indigenous Peoples’ Submission to the Call for Public Inputs on the GCF Indigenous Peoples Policy PDF Print
Tuesday, 15 August 2017 13:37

With a decision adopted at BM15, the Board of the Green Climate Fund mandated the Secretariat to develop and consider a Fund-wide Indigenous Peoples Policy at its 17th meeting that was held in Songdo in July 2017, a decision that was very welcome by us, indigenous peoples, and civil society organizations worldwide.[1]

The Secretariat since then launched a process of elaboration of a draft policy[2] that took due notice of the various proposals and elaborations, comments and critiques voiced by indigenous peoples’ representatives at the GCF and also originating from experience in the field, as well as the basic demands reiterated by the International Indigenous Peoples’ Forum on Climate Change (IIPFCC) in the course of its activities at UNFCCC COPs and preparatory meetings.

Appel public à contributions - Politique du Fonds vert pour le climat relative aux peuples autochtones PDF Print
Wednesday, 02 August 2017 14:53

Chers frères et sœurs,

Le Fonds vert pour le climat (FVC), organisme établi par la Conférence des parties (COP) à la Convention-cadre des Nations Unies sur les changements climatiques (CCNUCC) pour acheminer les fonds destinés à l’adaptation aux changements climatiques et à l’atténuation de leurs effets, est en train de mettre la dernière main à sa politique relative aux peuples autochtones. Le Secrétariat du FVC vient de lancer un appel public à contributions pour étayer cette politique relative aux peuples autochtones.

Voici une occasion sans précédent pour les peuples autochtones de se mobiliser pour s’assurer que le Fonds dispose d’une politique de haut niveau fondée sur les normes et les obligations internationales liées aux droits des peuples autochtones, comme la Déclaration des Nations Unies sur les droits des peuples autochtones (UNDRIP) et le principe du consentement préalable, libre et éclairé ; tout en reconnaissant le rôle positif des savoirs et des moyens de subsistance traditionnels des peuples autochtones pour l’adaptation aux changements climatiques et l’atténuation de leurs effets, et en veillant à ce que nous participions pleinement et effectivement aux activités du FVC à tous les niveaux. Par conséquent, la politique relative aux peuples autochtones constituera un instrument déterminant pour orienter la mise en œuvre des accords de la CCNUCC, notamment l’Accord de Paris.

Convocatoria de insumos públicos: Política de Pueblos Indígenas sobre el Fondo Verde para el Clima PDF Print
Wednesday, 02 August 2017 14:46

Queridos hermanos y hermanas,

El Fondo Verde para el Clima (GCF por sus siglas en inglés), la entidad establecida por la Conferencia de las Partes (COP) de la Convención Marco de las Naciones Unidas sobre Cambio Climático (CMNUCC) para canalizar fondos para la mitigación y adaptación al cambio climático, está en proceso de finalizar su Política de Pueblos Indígenas, y la Secretaria del GCF acaba de presentar un llamado público para recibir insumos sobre la política de pueblos indígenas.

Esto ofrece una oportunidad sin precedentes para que los pueblos indígenas se involucren y asegurar que el Fondo tenga una política de alto nivel basada en estándares y obligaciones internacionales sobre los derechos de los pueblos indígenas, como la Declaración de las Naciones Unidas sobre los Derechos de los Pueblos Indígenas, el Consentimiento libre, previo e informado (CLPI); reconociendo al mismo tiempo el papel positivo de los conocimientos tradicionales y los sistemas de medios de vida de los Pueblos Indígenas en  los temas de adaptación y mitigación,  y asegurando nuestra participación plena y efectiva en las actividades del Fondo en todos los niveles. Por lo tanto, la Política de Pueblos Indígenas será un instrumento crucial para guiar la implementación de los Acuerdos de la CMNUCC, incluido el Acuerdo de París.

Call for Public Inputs: Green Climate Fund Indigenous Peoples Policy PDF Print
Wednesday, 12 July 2017 15:47

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

The Green Climate Fund, the entity established by the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Conference of the Parties (COP) to channel funds for climate change mitigation and adaption, is now in the process of finalizing its Indigenous Peoples Policy and the GCF Secretariat has just made a Call for Public Inputs to the Indigenous Peoples’ Policy.

This offers an unprecedented opportunity for indigenous peoples to engage in order to ensure that the Fund has a high-level policy based on international standards and obligations for indigenous peoples’ rights, such as the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP) and Free, Prior and Informed Consent (FPIC); while acknowledging the positive role of Indigenous Peoples’ traditional knowledge and livelihood systems to adaptation and mitigation, and ensuring our full and effective participation in GCF activities at all levels. Therefore the Indigenous Peoples Policy will be a crucial instrument to guide the implementation of the UNFCCC Agreements, including the Paris Agreement.
