Indigenous Peoples Want Meaningful Consultation And Participation - Getrude Kenyangi At COP26
For nearly three decades the UN has been bringing together almost every country on earth for global climate summits – called COPs – which stands for ‘Conference of the Parties’. In that time climate change has gone from being a fringe issue to a global priority. Cultural Survival's Director of Strategic Partnerships and Communications Daisee Francour (Oneida) spoke to Gertrude Kenyangi (Batwa), Executive Director at Support for Women in Agriculture and Environment (SWAGEN) from Uganda, at COP26 which is taking place in Glasgow, Scotland, in November 2021.
