The delegation met earlier in Brazil to define their alignments and prepare positions
In Bonn, for the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change and the Bonn Climate Change Conference (Germany) SB 58, indigenous peoples were recognized, once again, as global leaders in the achievement of the goals of the Paris Agreement in the opening speeches of the IX Meeting of the Local Communities and Indigenous Peoples Platform (LCIPP), which traditionally opened the activities of the German Conference. The Brazilian indigenous delegation “not only made precise technical contributions to the work of the Platform, but also saw them retained in the decisions and referrals made by this instance, which is unique in the entire structure of the UNFCCC,” wrote Andreia Fanzeres, of OPAN.
At the end of May, the indigenous delegation from Brazil that participated in the LCIPP meeting, met in São Paulo for their preparation and alignment. Among those present, were four iCS partners: the Institute for Indigenous Research and Training (Iepé), the Native Amazon Operation (OPAN), the Coordination for Indigenous Organizations of the Brazilian Amazon (COIAB) and the Indigenous Council of Roraima (CIR).
