3. Join us at this Twitter chat with CLIMA FUND on Monday, August 9 at 10am PST/ 1pm EST.
Indigenous Peoples protect 80% of the world’s biodiversity, while comprising less than 5% of the global population. Strengthening and expanding Indigenous Peoples’ right to manage land alone can reduce the same amount of greenhouse emissions as the United States would emit by 2050. Yet, climate action led by Indigenous Peoples is chronically underfunded, accounting for less than 2% of global giving. The CLIMA Fund is hosting a global Twitter chat to commemorate the International Day of World's Indigenous Peoples and share how funding climate solutions led by Indigenous Peoples can be one of philanthropy’s ‘big bets’ in the climate crisis.
