Side Event: Indigenous Peoples Assessment of the Current Negotiation: Issues and Ways Forward

The subject was introduced by short story and film which voiced in many different ways that in whole development issue voice of local people is unheard. The case study from Philippines demonstrated how degradation of forests associated with many other industrial activities and other larger human interventions are sole cause of cyclone, typhoons, drought and other natural causes. All the speakers voiced in more or less same tone putting greater emphasis on human rights.
One speaker from Norway who was also the chair of a sub-committee indicated that concerns of indigenous people and references to human right are not likely to find a place in the negotiations.
