The University of British Columbia (UBC) Faculty of Forestry and WWF International Forest and Climate Programme are sponsoring an international roundtable to facilitate discussion by Indigenous Peoples’ representatives of the important issues of forests and climate change.
The roundtable will support ongoing preparations by Indigenous Peoples for the Conference of Parties (COP21) of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in December 2015 as well as beyond.
