Climate Action Lab: Forest Conservation and Indigenous Communities Register

April 4 @ 9:00 am 10:00 am UTC-8


This CAL session will focus on the efforts of Indigenous peoples to protect their ancestral lands from deforestation, oil and gas extraction, mining, and land grabbing. Indigenous communities often represent the last line of defense against destruction of natural systems that are vital to regulating the global climate, yet they receive a minuscule percentage of philanthropic support related to climate change. Explore how climate funding that supports Indigenous communities and forest conservation efforts can create outsize impact.
