20 December 2016 (Baguio City, Philippines) - Tebtebba and the Forest Carbon Partnership Facility (FCPF) of the World Bank launches the FCPF Capacity Building on REDD+ for Forest-Dependent Indigenous Peoples in East Asia and Pacific (EAP) and South Asia Region (SAR).

The capacity building project aims to strengthen: (i) the knowledge of targeted forest-dependent indigenous peoples on REDD+ Readiness at the national level and (ii) knowledge exchange at the regional level.

The project's duration will be from October 2016 - October 2018 and will have 3 components, among which are the following:

  1. National Capacity Building and Awareness Raising to support capacity building and awareness raising activities of forest-dependent IP communities and of national or local organizations representing Forest-Dependent Indigenous Peoples, to enable them to engage government and other stakeholders involved in REDD+ processes.

  2. Regional Exchange and Sharing of Lessons Learned to finance activities that aim to document and publicize program activities with a view to highlighting good practices and lessons learned. Activities to be supported will include a dissemination and awareness workshop as well as the publication of written and audio-visual materials.
Tebtebba is the recipient of the project for the East Asia and Pacific and South Asia regions.

 

The project documents are as follows:

Indigenous peoples call for recognition of rights at the Green Climate Fund PDF Print

 

6 September 2016 - As the Green Climate Fund (GCF) is being pressured to approve more projects and targets disbursing US$2.6 billion by end of 2016, indigenous peoples’ issues are being left out.

In its 13th meeting of the GCF Board in Songdo, South Korea on June 28-30, 2016, indigenous peoples expressed their concern that the GCF is out of sync with the emerging international good practice and transformational approaches.

This is with respect to recognition, promotion and fulfillment of indigenous peoples’ rights within the context of climate change interventions.

“We want to express that we are concerned about how the Fund is seemingly intentional in its silence about indigenous peoples’ issues,” Kimaren Ole Riamit, a Maasai and head of ILEPA (Indigenous Livelihood Enhancement Partners) from Kenya said during the civil society preparatory meeting.

Indigenous Peoples' Submission on the Review of Observers' Participation to the GCF PDF Print
Saturday, 27 August 2016 09:52

 

A. INTRODUCTION

Indigenous Peoples welcome the opportunity provided by the request for inputs on the review of Observer Participation with a view to identifying existing gaps and needed improvements, related to observer participation, accreditation of observer organizations and participation of active observers in activities and meetings of the board and to ultimately present a report with recommendations on the outcomes of the review for consideration by the Board no later than its fifteenth meeting[1] as mandated in decision B.01-13/03.

While we are fully aware that the objective of the review is less about expanding the range of active observers (by constituency or otherwise), than its enhancing the participation of current active observer, we still wish to convey our views to the Board and Secretariat. We believe that the lack of recognition of Indigenous Peoples as active observers in the Green Climate Fund is an anomaly, especially given our potential contribution to climate change adaptation and mitigation through our indigenous knowledge systems and traditional occupations with low carbon foot prints, and vulnerability to both direct negative impacts of climate change and unsafeguarded response measures.
