Indigenous Peoples and the Green Climate Fund (GCF)

Print
Raising indigenous peoples’ interests at the GCF is a long and continuing arduous process that requires a lot of energy and effort. Indigenous peoples have made significant inroads in the GCF and are opening spaces to meaningfully engage with the GCF at global and national levels... 
 
This publication was conceived to consolidate the reports, letters and briefing notes of indigenous peoples’ engagement with the GCF thus far. It also aims to celebrate the achievements and account for the challenges and opportunities that indigenous peoples face in the Green Climate Fund.
