Coordinator of Indigenous Organizations of the Amazon River Basin Side Events at COP 18

An Amazonian delegation from the 9 countries in the basin will participate in COP 18 to present their proposal for Amazonian Indigenous REDD+, which shares the objective of reducing carbon emissions by deforestation and degradation of forests, through a strategy based on territorial rights and the holistic management of natural resources and the ecosystemic services that these provide; avoiding the problems and conflicts of the carbon credit market and the commodification of nature.
