Seeking pro-poor and people-centered responses to climate change
On May 27th, individuals from NGOs and research institutions working on climate change came together to discuss opportunities for pro-poor and people-centered adaptation and mitigation strategies. The consultation was hosted by the CGIAR program on Collective Action and Property Rights (CAPRi), and participants in the dialogue included representatives from IFPRI, CAPRi, RRI, CIEL, Amazon Alliance, CIFOR, USDA, Forest Trends, WRI and others institutions.
Participants shared information on current initiatives underway to address climate change, agreeing that pro-poor climate change frameworks must:
- promote governance systems that build on local and traditional knowledge;
- involve communities in the design and implementation of climate change activities at the project-level; and
- encompass the principle of free prior informed consent to ensure that affected communities receive benefits from local initiatives.
The dialogue will continue in the 3rd quarter as part of the Rights, Forests and Climate Change conference to be organized by RRI, CAPRi and Rainforest Foundation
