OPEN CLIMATE: MOVING TOWARD AN INDIGENOUS CLIMATE ECONOMY
This event is in Spanish, with simultaneous translation into English
Date and time: Tue, January 18, 2022 @ 8 AM – 9:30 AM PST (4 PM - 5:30 PM UK)
Speaker: Tuntiak Katan, Coordinator of the Global Alliance of Territorial Communities
Chair: Nicolas Salazar Sutil, Guardians Worldwide/Tenure Facility
COP26 pledged $1.7 billion dollars to support Indigenous communities, which set the agenda for this global climate summit. The message from many Indigenous leaders is that money should not be the main focus of climate action, and that forests cannot be mercantilised or monetised.
Monetary value is part of a more complex value system that needs systemic change. Indigenous organisations require funding to continue protecting forests and so as to mitigate climate change not because of economic self-interest but in order to build capacity. Indigenous organisations urgently need capacity-building so that these pledged funds can be managed at the grassroots level, by local and Indigenous groups.
At the heart of this move toward a different climate financing architecture is a campaign for social and environmental justice. Tuntiak Katak is one of the main figures of the global Indigenous campaign for climate justice.
In this talk, Tuntiak Katak will explain Shandia Plan, a model for climate financing that seeks to overcome the existing carbon market model and greenwashing of existing climate funding agendas. Shandia is a system for the financing of climate action that serves indigenous, community and circular economies, prioritizing land rights and a holistic value system that serves life.
