GW Law – Climate Justice for Latin American Indigenous Peoples

This panel will address pressing issues that Latin American indigenous peoples face in the fight to secure climate justice. Experts and advocates on this panel will address the following climate justice contexts: (1) climate resilience challenges in the face of natural resource extraction projects and efforts to enhance procedural protections for indigenous communities in decision-making processes; (2) forced displacement of indigenous communities from climate change in cases in the Inter-American Human Rights system, and (3) the relationship between carbon markets and indigenous peoples’ rights. After the panelists’ presentations, the moderator and panelists will engage in a brief discussion to respond to some of the key themes raised. The session will conclude with a Q&A session with the in-person and online audiences.
