The Green Climate Fund is drafting a standard for Indigenous Peoples that could lift many other standards

With the call for public input just ending, the GCF will be incorporating more protections for Indigenous Peoples.  Will this bring a new era of respect for Indigenous Peoples’ lands and resources, whether those lands have been formally titled or not?  Will it lead to respect for Indigenous Peoples’ rights in conservation and public protected areas?  Already Indigenous Peoples and local communities conserve as much area as is in government-managed protected areas and invest significantly in protection and conservation activities.
