Amazon Watch Elevates Indigenous Voices at UN Climate Talks

Amazon Watch attended the Cancun climate talks where we worked to elevate the voices of our Amazonian Indigenous allies from Ecuador and Brazil. After two weeks of negotiations, the UN climate summit concluded with an agreement that some hail as a victory because proposals such as a Green Climate Fund and REDD (Reduced Emissions for Deforestation and Degradation) were formally adopted. In the view of many of our Amazonian Indigenous allies however, the Cancun agreement is not a victory. Instead, it represents a threat to Indigenous rights and tropical forests. Watch and share this short video featuring Marlon Santi, Sonia Guajajara and Pablo Salon, Bolivian Ambassador.
