Dear Friends,

The Indigenous Peoples Major Group (IPMG) for Sustainable Development, in collaboration with the International Indigenous Forum on Biodiversity (IIFB) and the International Indigenous Peoples’ Forum on Climate Change (IIPFCC), will be conducting a series of webinars to orient indigenous representatives on the objectives, mandate, history, and current key technical and strategic issues relevant for indigenous peoples that are under negotiation or needing more effective implementation in the CBD, SDGs, and UNFCCC.

The year 2020 presents key advocacy opportunities within several international processes that Indigenous Peoples are involved in. The Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) is in the middle of a preparatory process to develop the Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework, while the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) is struggling to generate resources to operationalize the Local Communities and Indigenous Peoples Platform (LCIPP), and undergoing difficult negotiations on Article 6 of the Paris Agreement in relation to the inclusion of human rights due diligence in the Rule Book, among others. For the SDGs, there is an urgent need for countries to step up their implementation with the inclusion of indigenous peoples as no country is on track to achieve the SDGs. Further, policy coherence and the integration of the human rights obligations and commitment of states, among others, are necessary to meet the pledge of ”leaving no one behind.”

The orientation webinars will be conducted for each of the processes - CBD, Climate Change, and the SDGs - on September 8-11, 2020. It will be in different time zones to reach indigenous peoples in all the regions. Likewise, interpretation in Spanish, French, and Russian will be provided.

On behalf of the Steering Committee,

Joan Carling
