Asia Indigenous Peoples Pact (AIPP) Submission on Safeguards Information System (SIS): What Should SIS Deliver For Indigenous Peoples
The COP 19 decision explicitly mentions that parties are required to submit the most recent summary of information on how all the social and environmental safeguards have been addressed and respected in order to be able to access the results-based finance. However, this does not provide clarity on how effectively and to what extent these safeguards will be addressed. It also lacks the information on ways to redress the potential violation of indigenous peoples’ rights resulting from the REDD+ activities.
