Indigenous peoples and local communities are gaining increasing international recognition of their roles in the conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity under the CBD. At the same time, they struggle to retain similar rights under UNFCCC REDD. This side event brings together community representatives, NGOs, and the SCBD to explore the linkages between the CBD and REDD in relation to indigenous peoples and local communities and to discuss the challenges communities will face with their joint implementation.
