Post 2015 Development Process: Environmental Sustainability
Many of the areas of highest biological diversity on the planet are inhabited by indigenous peoples. The current and accelerating climatic and environmental changes threaten indigenous peoples’ basis for existence around the world. The post-2015 development agenda offers a unique opportunity to address indigenous peoples’ key concerns and possible solutions for environmental sustainability beyond 2015. This briefing note has been prepared by the International Work Group for Indigenous Affairs (IWGIA), in collaboration with Tebtebba, and is intended as an informative note for stakeholders in the post-2015 development process.
