Actions to conserve nature are closely related to the rights of people to secure their livelihoods, enjoy healthy and productive environments and live with dignity. This high-level event will bring together Indigenous leaders, senior leadership of international conservation organizations and leaders from human rights and development organizations to build a shared understanding of how human rights, Indigenous rights, equity and good governance underpin effective conservation, and how diverse constituencies can work together towards common goals. We propose to invite key Indigenous experts working in the field of indigenous rights to share their perspectives, including a member(s) of Conservation International’s Indigenous Advisory Group (IAG) who will explore how the IAG’s work influences CI, its conservation partners, and the international conservation agenda in the context of REDD +, conservation and indigenous rights. We will also invite representatives from International conservation organizations that are members of the Conservation Initiative on Human Rights and that are working to incorporate rights-based approaches and be more responsive to the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples in their broader conservation strategies. In addition, we will include indigenous leaders and representatives from the human rights arena and development organizations share their experience in addressing human rights issues through rights-based approaches.The workshop will be structured as a facilitated dialogue among the high-level participants and the audience.The dialogue will help find new ways forward to ensure Indigenous and human rights, equitable benefits sharing, and will consider how rights-based approaches supports these efforts.The event will conclude with a wrap-up outlining key perspectives, areas of consensus and recommendations for practical ways to better align conservation and rights objectives.
