INDIGENOUS PEOPLES, FORESTS AND REDD PLUS: Sustaining and Enhancing Forests Through Traditional Resource Management by The Tebtebba Foundation

"Indigenous peoples' efforts to protect and conserve their forests and to sustainably manage these prove that they are the ones who have contributed to significantly in reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation, even before REDD came into the picture. If their customary institutions and practices for managing forests and other resources are reinforced, their contributions... will be further enhanced." - Victoria Tauli-Corpuz
