Circumpolar Inuit Call on Global Leaders to Act on Arctic Climate Change at COP15 in Copenhagen


ICC logo13 November, 2009 – Copenhagen, Denmark -- Inuit leaders, through the Inuit Circumpolar Council (ICC), today released a document calling on global leaders to adopt a meaningful agreement at December’s UN Climate Change Convention (UNCCC) Conference in Copenhagen – one that will safeguard the future of the Arctic. The Inuit homeland in the Arctic has been identified by scientists as climate change region of concern, and ICC’s Call on Global Leaders notes the Arctic’s important role in moderating the global climate and controlling world-wide ocean currents.

Barcelona was the last session before the Copenhagen conference, and thus there were hopes it would achieve success in closing gaps on the many issues still outstanding.

There was some progress in clarifying some issues, for example some new texts were discussed in finance and technology issues. They did not bridge the differences, but helped countries to clarify their positions better and thus enabled decisions on key issues to be made in Copenhagen (such as the setting up of a Fund inside the UNFCCC, and whether to set up a new executive body to decide on technology transfer issues inside the UNFCCC)

In the face of current international negotiations on climate change and with full respect to our ancestors and our Mother Earth, the indigenous peoples and communities represented in the organizational structures of El Salvador that integrate the CCNIS, endorse the current Declaration,


a) Indigenous peoples live in the most fragile ecosystems of the Earth, namely: tropical wet forests, mountainous systems, coastal plains, deserts, moors and islands, among others, and are human populations highly vulnerable to climate variability and change. The negative impacts due to global climate change threat all forms of life that currently exist in our Mother Earth, as well as the diverse human cultures, natural environments and livelihoods of rural human populations.
