Launch of the Land Rights Standard
Why is it essential for non-state actors to follow common principles that ensure their climate, biodiversity, and sustainable development investments are rights-based? How can we elevate the rights and aspirations of Indigenous Peoples, local communities, and Afro-Descendant Peoples? And what is the role of women and youth in all of this?
This launchpad answers these questions and elaborates on the importance and potential impact of the Land Rights Standard in setting a bar for protecting landscapes. Hear the stories from participants in the Indigenous-led process that led to the Standard.
