We are the best #GuardiansOfTheForestAs indigenous peoples and territorial communities from the Amazon Basin, Brazil, Indonesia and Mesoamerica, we represent the guardians of 400 million hectares of tropical forests around the world. We advocate for the respect of our territorial rights and the inclusion of our demands in global negotiations on forests and climate change. Our Alliance is made up of four territorial organizations: Aliansi Masyarakat Adat Nusantara (AMAN), Mesoamerican Alliance of Peoples and Forests (AMPB), Articulation of Indigenous Peoples of Brazil (APIB) and Coordinator of Indigenous Organizations of the Amazon Basin (COICA).
FACING THIS SERIOUS PANDEMIC, INDIGENOUS AND LOCAL COMMUNITIES OF THE PLANET ARE ALSO THREATENED BY LOGGERS, MINERS AND LAND GRABBERS. THEIR ROLE AS FOREST SHIELDS PUTS THEM AT GREATER RISK OF CONTRACTING THE COVID-19.
HELP US PROTECT OUR PEOPLE FROM THESE AND OTHER THREATS.
