We, the undersigned representatives of indigenous peoples, local communities
and non-governmental organizations monitoring the progress of negotiations
in Poznan are outraged that the United States, Canada, Australia and New
Zealand opposed the inclusion of recognition of the rights of indigenous
peoples and local communities in a decision on REDD (Reduced Emissions from
Deforestation and Forest Degradation) drafted today by government delegates
at the UN Climate Conference.
