Jennifer Corpuz Speaks At The Convention On Biological Diversity In Geneva

Representatives from the Global Environmental Facility -GEF- presented their plans for the implementation of the new Global Biodiversity Framework Fund (GBFF) established at COP15 last year. During the International Dialogue with Indigenous Peoples on the Implementation of the Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework in Geneva, they revealed that there is no new mechanism to directly fund Indigenous-led or Indigenous-governed funds. Many Indigenous leaders have shared about the inefficiencies of the GEF system when it comes to access to funds for Indigenous Peoples. We asked Jennifer if she was concerned that this was more of the same, and if she thought Indigenous Peoples continue facing barriers when accessing funds, now from the GBFF.
