The Green Climate Fund (GCF) aims to achieving a paradigm shift towards a low carbon and climate-resilient development pathway in the global response to climate change.

Ambitioning to become the most important multilateral instrument in climate finance, the Fund pays particular attention to the needs of communities and nations that are highly vulnerable to climate change.

After grueling indigenous lobbying on March 2017, the GCF Secretariat sent a call for inputs in relation to the development of the indigenous peoples’ policy of the Fund. Indigenous peoples continue to point that GCF activities and projects could only succeed by promoting communities engagement and achieving consensus.

This discussion will focus on multi-stakholder challenges for meaningful participation in this process. Among the speakers, Kimaren Ole, on behalf of the Indigenous Peoples Global Partnership on Climate Change Forests and Sustainable Development will share this group vision and demands.

Join us on Wednesday November 8th 2017, from 15:00 to 16:30 at Meeting Room 7 (Bonn Zone). The event is hosted by German Watch, Tebtebba and the International Youth and Student Movement for the United Nations at COP23.

If you want information on the proposed GCF Indigenous Peoples Policy you will have a chance to talk to the leaders of this Global Partnership who will give an update of the discussion and ways forward. This event is organized by Tebtebba and will take place on November 10th 2017, from 12:30pm to 1:45pm at the Indigenous Pavillion (Bonn Zone).
