This event will highlight Indigenous-led funding mechanisms as effective and equitable platforms for driving climate finance toward the most impactful interventions on the ground for protecting biodiversity, mitigating climate change, and providing sustainable livelihood opportunities. The event will feature three leading financial mechanisms, the SeaCoast Trust in Alaska, the Podaali Fund in Brazil, and the Africa Forest Carbon Catalyst with Indigenous and local community representatives from each sharing stories about how the mechanisms work, what their impact has been to date, and what their outstanding needs and challenges are. They will share progress in accessing and utilizing climate funding to date and enter into dialogue to discuss and identify ways to improve, decolonize, accelerate, and scale climate finance opportunities for IPLCs.
