Tropical Forests, Indigenous Peoples, and Climate ChangeWith no less than 20% of the world’s tropical forest carbon located within indigenous territories,  these lands represent a significant opportunity for conserving biodiversity and combating climate change.  Our group works with indigenous communities, national institutions, and mediating not-for-profit organizations in Brazil and Costa Rica to consider innovative initiatives for reducing greenhouse gas emissions via community forest conservation.
