On this page you will find concise overviews of the facts in Article 6 that, and other proposals and agreements from the ratification of the 2015 Paris Agreement, will continue to be market-based, heavily in favor of the chemical, agriculture, fossil fuels, and hard rock mining industries. The false solutions from carbon markets to the hydrogen hype are all designed to extend these industries for decades to come.

Within this collection of fact sheets you will find how:

  • Climate finance cannot possibly result in securing the rights of Indigenous Peoples, as outlined in the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.
  • The United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP) asserts a number of rights specifically for Indigenous Peoples, and this conflation in Article 6 serves to undermine them.
  • Indigenous Peoples hold a unique legal/political status amongst and within nation-states that is not as a local community or ethnic minority.
  • We support the direct funding of Indigenous Peoples in developing countries, and further, that such funding have no hidden strings attached that would extinguish inherent rights.
  • Funds or programs developed through the Loss and Damage Fund will only be eligible for Indigenous Peoples in developing countries.
  • Climate finance does not address sovereignty, jurisprudence, territorial rights, demarcation of ancestral lands, and true reparations for Indigenous Peoples and local communities.
