Region publication is about:
Indigenous peoples assert that rights cannot be compromised and have recognized the need to strengthen existing skills and capacities for lobbying and advocacy. This manual aims to fulfill this need and seeks to develop a new generation of indigenous leaders who can advocate for indigenous peoples in climate change negotiations, including REDD+ processes.
Indigenous peoples have proactively engaged in international negotiation for their full and effective participation in decision making and collective rights to lands, territories and resources including free, prior and inform consent (FPIC) as stipulated in the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP). The manual aims to help to strengthen the ongoing advocacy, lobbying and networking of indigenous peoples at all levels.
This manual is the fourth in a series of the manuals after: What to do with REDD+? A manual for Indigenous Trainers; Understanding Community Based REDD+: A Manual for Indigenous Community Trainers and Training Manual on Free, Prior and Informed Consent (FPIC) in REDD+ for Indigenous Peoples under the project “Climate change partnership with Indigenous Peoples: Promoting Rights Based, Equitable and Pro-poor REDD+ Strategies in South and South East Asia”.
