Indigenous Rights: Securing the Future of Biodiversity

11–11:45 a.m. G.M.T.
The Think Tank

As countries strive to preserve biodiversity, they are finally turning to the expertise of Indigenous peoples and their multidimensional, nature-based approaches. This session gives the stage to Indigenous leaders, who will discuss the critical role that their communities’ knowledge will play in building solutions, and the justice issues that must be addressed for that to happen. How can we facilitate transparent, respectful engagement with Indigenous communities and give them the resources needed to secure a healthy future for the land and the planet?
