At COP26 the voice of indigenous people was heard at the top table for the first time.

Este webinar final da série Diálogos da Terra 2022, terá lugar após a Conferência das Nações Unidas sobre Alterações Climáticas COP 27 (6 - 18 de Novembro, Sharm El-Sheik). Tendo sido feita uma promessa histórica de 1,7 mil milhões de dólares na COP26 do ano passado pelo Grupo de Fundadores da Propriedade Florestal para fazer avançar os direitos de propriedade dos Povos Indígenas e das Comunidades Locais e a sua tutela florestal, é importante que discutamos os desafios e oportunidades no contexto destes importantes avanços. O webinar "Post COP27: Reflecting on Donor Promises to Forest Guardians" servirá como uma plataforma para reflectir sobre os progressos alcançados, o que está a faltar e se a promessa de 1,7 mil milhões de dólares feita durante a COP26 foi reflectida durante a COP27.
This final webinar of the Land Dialogues 2022 series, will take place after the UN Climate Change Conference COP 27 (6 – 18 November, Sharm El-Sheik). With a historic 1.7 billion dollar pledge having been made at last year’s COP26 by the Forest Tenure Funders Group to advance Indigenous Peoples’ and Local Communities’ tenure rights and their forest guardianship, it is important that we discuss challenges and opportunities in the context of these important advancements. The “Post COP27: Reflecting on Donor Promises to Forest Guardians” webinar will serve as a platform to reflect on progress made, what is falling short and if the 1.7 billion dollar pledge made during COP26 was reflected during COP27.
