COP27 - Lisa Qiluqqi Koperqualuk: Our Cultures Are Tied To Our Environment
Indigenous Peoples are not just stakeholders; Indigenous Peoples are rights holders. Cultural Survival reiterates the importance of Indigenous Peoples’ access to direct participation at the same negotiation tables as nation states at the UNFCCC COP27, with the right to have a voice and vote, and the inclusion of references to human and Indigenous Peoples’ rights in all documents.
Cultural Survival also attended COP 27, and we spoke to Indigenous delegates at the Conference.
In this interview, we spoke to Lisa Qiluqqi Koperqualuk.
