Foundations for Effectiveness: A framework for ensuring effective climate change mitigation and adaptation in forest areas while ensuring human rights and development
- Rights and Resources, Rainforest Foundation Norway
Moving towards Copenhagen, governments party to the UNFCCC are preparing plans that will include forests in a global framework for addressing climate change mitigation. In this pivotal moment, it is critical to recognize, protect and strengthen the rights of indigenous peoples and forest communities — their full participation will be essential to the success of climate intervention strategies designed here.
This policy brief aims to provide negotiators, their governments and inter-governmental organizations a clear framework for action to ensure that responses to climate change do not undermine national social and economic development.
The analysis is based on the conclusions of the conference on Rights, Forests and Climate Change, organized by Rights and Resources Initiative and Rainforest Foundation Norway and held in Oslo, 15-17 October 2008.
