This policy paper on SIS presents indigenous peoples’ perspectives and understandings of the Cancun Safeguards. The paper specifically highlights the types of information that SIS should contain; the mechanisms and processes to gather information; and process to validate the collected information. This paper has been prepared based on the submission made by the Asia Indigenous Peoples Pact (AIPP) to the Subsidiary Body for Scientific and Technological Advice (SBSTA) in Sep. 24 2014. Indigenous peoples of Asia will use this policy paper as the advocacy paper in the upcoming 41st session of SBSTA in the COP20 in Peru, Lima.
