Seeing ‘REDD’? Forests, climate change mitigation and the rights of indigenous peoples

Description (Forest Peoples Programme 2009)

A Pocket Guide on REDD

A short guide for indigenous communities discussing the questions of climate change and the international debate surrounding REDD. The guide covers the issues of deforestation and forest degradation; climate change causes and impacts; UN Framework Convention on Climate Change and Kyoto Protocol; and opportunities and risks of introducing REDD. (Barnsley / UNU-IAS, 2008)

Resource Kit on Indigenous Peoples Issues

Prepared by the Secretariat of the United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues, this Kit focuses on development and indigenous peoples, with emphasis on their full and effective participation in all development processes and the need for a genuine partnership in - and ownership with them - of these processes. (UN, 2008)

Indigenous and Traditional Peoples and Climate Change

Indigenous and traditional peoples are among those most at risk from climate change. This document looks in detail at the potential impacts of climate change on vulnerable communities and cultures and their associated ecosystems, and seeks to develop effective and culturally appropriate adaptation and mitigation measures. (Macchi / IUCN, 2008)

From Dictatorship to Democracy

From Dictatorship to Democracy was a pamphlet, printed and distributed by Dr Gene Sharp and based on his study, over a period of forty years, on non-violent methods of demonstration. Now in its fourth edition, it was originally handed out by the Albert Einstein Institution, and although never actively promoted, to date it has been translated into thirty-one languages. This astonishing book travelled as a photocopied pamphlet from Burma to Indonesia, Serbia and most recently Egypt, Tunisia and Syria, with dissent in China also reported. Surreptitiously handed out amongst youth uprisings the world over - how the 'how-to' guide came about and its role in the recent Arab uprisings is an extraordinary tale. (Sharp, 1994)
