Thomson Reuters Foundation: “Ensuring indigenous rights seen as key as forest carbon investments grow”

This article by Alister Doyle published by Thomson Reuters Foundation, as well as by The Daily Mail and ExBulletin, focuses on the commitments made at COP26 to tackle deforestation and what they will mean for indigenous peoples and voluntary carbon markets (VCMs).

The article quotes Naomi Swickard as being excited about the announcements, but that the promised $19 billion was insufficient to “tap the full power of nature to help solve climate change.”
