Introduction Print


The project shall help develop capacities of indigenous peoples on climate change, indigenous peoples' rights and REDD+:

1. Increase the knowledge and understanding of indigenous peoples on REDD, how this links to their traditional forest management practices and their rights to control, manage and own their forests and to develop and enhance their skills to influence REDD processes at various levels.

  • Training-workshops for indigenous representatives, designated by their organizations and communities, to be equipped with the necessary knowledge on climate change, in general, and REDD, in particular and the skills to be able to influence processes where REDD is being negotiated, designed and implemented. These will be done at national, regional and global levels.
  • Regional training-of-trainors (TOT) workshops and one training activity multiplied per country (either at the national or local levels).
  • Development of modules and resource kits that will be used in training and education activities; with translation and production of modules and resource materials to local languages, as recommended per country.
  • Development, production and dissemination of popular materials and video documentaries and films on REDD, indigenous peoples and climate change to be done in each country.
