This event is an effort to:

  • evaluate the current conditions of cooperation and international decision-making spaces in order to establish a roadmap for building more efficient mechanisms through virtual and face-to-face joint work spaces.
  • establish a joint action strategy through the organization of the Amazon Summit V.
  • consolidate the leadership of indigenous peoples to enable advocacy in the transition of global public policies, through direct implementation planningin territories with indigenous peoples.

Invited by its partner organisation COICA – the Coordinating Committee of Indigenous Organizations of the Amazon Basin – Climate Alliance is sending a delegation, including Climate Alliance’s president Andreas Wolter, to Lima to join the Amazon Summit. Climate Alliance is planning to bring relevant topics to the table, such as climate partnerships as well as renewable energies and strategies for Amazonia.
