Indigenous Peoples' Agenda for conservation unveiled at IUCN World Conservation Congress

MARSEILLE, France — Indigenous delegates to this year’s global conservation congress have launched an “Indigenous People’s Agenda” for conservation, calling for approaches to the biodiversity crisis that center land rights for their communities and provide funding for self-determined ecosystem management.

The agenda, unveiled over the weekend, follows a decision in 2016 by members of the IUCN, the worldwide conservation authority, to create a new category for Indigenous peoples’ organizations. It also marks the first time those organizations have formally participated as members in the IUCN World Conservation Congress, which is held once every four years.
