Accra Caucus on Forests and Climate Change
The Accra Caucus on Forests and Climate Change is a coalition of civil society groups from Brazil, Cameroon, Costa Rica, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ecuador, Ghana, Honduras, Indonesia, Nepal, Nicaragua, Papua New Guinea, Philippines, Republic of the Congo, Thailand, and Vietnam. In a statement to the COP14 the group stated that a REDD scheme must "recognize and respect the rights of Indigenous Peoples and local communities to lands, territories and resources, and their traditional uses of the forest. Implementation of REDD must not lead to displacement of Indigenous Peoples and local communities from their territories and lands."
