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.
