September 21 @ 11:00 am

Join us for a critical discussion on the indispensable leadership of Indigenous Peoples and Local Communities (IPLCs) in climate and biodiversity action, and on how recognizing their leadership could deeply transform the global financial system and pave the way to sustainability and justice. While extensively documented in recent reports by global institutions like IPCC, IPBES, UN FAO, and WRI, IPLCs have received less than 1% of climate funding over the past decade, with only 17% of global funding meant for them actually reaching the communities on the ground. This event, building on a successful gathering at the OECD headquarters in Paris, aims to assess recent developments and tackle the challenges ahead in recognizing and honoring the rights and roles of IPLCs. Join us at the People’s Forum in New York as we work together to rectify this disparity and ensure IPLCs are rightfully acknowledged in the pursuit of a sustainable future. Your participation can be a catalyst for positive change.
