Indigenous Peoples on the Ground Are Doing Much for Biodiversity
At the Opening of the 5th meeting of the Open-ended Working Group on the Post-2020 Biodiversity Framework, parties reviewed the proposed organization of work and agreed to use the Outcomes of the Work of the Informal Group on the Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework coming out of the Nairobi meetings held in June 2022, in Nairobi, Kenya. Indigenous leaders representing the International Indigenous Forum for Biodiversity have been actively participating in the discussions of the text that will be sent to the COP15 for its approval, to ensure that Indigenous Peoples’ rights are upheld and that adequate language is included in the text that safeguards the rights of Indigenous Peoples.
In this podcast, cultural survival hears from Joji Carino (Ibaloi) who tells us about the great work that Indigenous Peoples are doing on the ground and she also elaborates on the Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework. Joji Carino is Senior Policy Adviser at Forest Peoples Programme.
