In September 10-12, 2013, Natural Jusice’s Dr. Cath Traynor attended an international expert workshop entitled: "Practical Approaches to Ensuring the Full and Effective Participation of Indigenous Peoples in REDD+". the workshop was held in Weilburg, Germany, and was co-hosted by BMZ, Forest Carbon Partnership Facility (FCPF) and the UN-REDD Programme.
The workshop offered space for the analysis of REDD+ participation and consultation standards, explored practical approaches and shed light on unsolved questions evolving around the challenge to provide for legitimate, effective and yet feasible inclusion of Indigenous Peoples in REDD+processes. Dr. Traynor shared with the participants the value of community protocols, and the work that Natural Justice is doing in this area. This, and other contributions and insights are included in the recently published workshop report.
