Emirates News Agency – UN climate change chief for COP28 discusses impacts of Amazon deforestation with indigenous leaders in Brazil


Belém – Brazil, August 10 / WAM / At the COP28 Conference of the Parties, UN Climate Change Secretary-General Razan Al Mubarak, President of the International Union for Conservation of Nature, emphasized the need to engage indigenous peoples on climate change. Action campaigns, especially efforts to protect the possibility of meeting the goal of avoiding temperature rise. The Earth is at 1.5 ° C, because forest dwellers are its best guardians.

This came when he participated in the Amazon Summit and Cooperation for Sustainable Development (ACTO) in Belem, Brazil as part of the COP28 Presidency delegation, where he held bilateral meetings with several Heads of State, Ministers, Governors and Leaders. Tribal communities.

The Amazon Summit and Cooperation on Sustainable Development (ACTO) is expected to set an ambitious and integrated policy to protect the world’s largest rainforest.

During his meeting with the leaders of the indigenous peoples, His Excellency spoke about the role of indigenous peoples in protecting the environment: “About half of the remaining virgin forests in the world are located in the areas of the Amazon indigenous peoples. Therefore, their pioneering and historic role in protecting nature and climate should be appreciated, especially every year in August 9 on the occasion of the International Day of Indigenous Peoples.

His Excellency invited the leaders of the indigenous communities to present their work plan at the COP28 Conference of the Parties to be held in the United Arab Emirates next November.

The average rate of deforestation in the territories of indigenous and indigenous peoples of Latin America is lower than in other forests, because in many of these areas deforestation is prevented at the same level as in protected areas, or in some cases better, for example, between 2006 and 2011, deforestation in the Amazon in Peru decreased in protected areas with similar environmental conditions. During Razan Al Mubarak’s meeting with Brazilian environmentalist Alessandra Korab, the task of protecting rainforests and protecting their traditional livelihoods from increasing economic pressures was discussed, a difficult and often dangerous task. I am delighted to meet with local leaders to discuss the best ways to protect the Amazon region, ensuring everyone is included and putting their views and opinions at the forefront of the COP28 agenda.

His Highness Razan Al Mubarak called on financial institutions and companies to refrain from activities that destroy nature, while facilitating the access of indigenous communities to formal financial systems.

It is noteworthy that the Amazon region is one of the warmest and most important regions for biodiversity, and one of the natural carbon stores that absorb large amounts of greenhouse gases that have a significant impact on climate change. It’s alarming, prompting scientists to warn last year that the gradual death of large-scale trees could lead to the conversion of rainforests to dry grassy plains, and deforestation would destroy the livelihoods and lifestyles of indigenous communities in the Amazon region.
