Description: Local action is essential in nature if we are to tackle our planetary emergency; we need an all-of-society approach. We are already seeing action by youth, Indigenous peoples and local communities in every country. This set of sessions will shine a spotlight on these efforts, showcasing success stories, highlighting challenges and obstacles, and showing pathways to scaling up local action to have global impacts.

Session 4.4 Defending our Future: Securing a Future for Environmental Defenders – and Our Planet – through Securing Rights, Tenure and Governance

In 2019, more than 200 environmental defenders were killed, and many more were tortured, beaten or intimidated. Environmental defenders are at the frontline in protecting the nature that sustains all. In this session, we will hear from the diverse peoples who protect the world’s forests, the Indigenous and community leaders who are being criminalized and murdered at alarming rates. This is a serious problem not only for the communities themselves who lose family members, homes and livelihoods but also for the forests they protect. Eighty percent of the world’s biodiversity is protected by Indigenous and local peoples with a critical mass of scientific research proving that any plan for conservation must have elected indigenous leaders and local peoples guiding decisions. In this closing session of the Nature for Life Hub, we will also hear how we can support the world’s Indigenous and local communities as they fight to protect the last remaining tropical rainforests.
