A project aiming at promoting indigenous peoples’ participation and proposals in global climate processes, through spaces prepared in the “Pavilion of Indigenous Peoples in the UNFCCC-COP20”, was implemented with the support of the Norwegian government, based on the Agreement signed by MINAM-COICA-AIDESEP on April 2014. You may find a brief description below:
The Pavilion of Indigenous Peoples has spaces for exhibitions in all visual and artistic formats, and auditoriums with thematic panels for indigenous peoples in two locations:
In Voices for Climate, the Maloca of Indigenous Peoples gathered several organizations and representatives of Indigenous peoples of Peru and the world. It is the space in which these Indigenous peoples will express their climate change initiatives and knowledge.
The project is implemented with a specific technical team; the administration of the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) and with a close coordination among the Coordinator of Indigenous Organizations of the Amazon Basin (COICA), the Ministry of the Environment of Peru (MINAM) and UNDP. It also has the supplementary support of ICAA-USAID and other entities.
