Local Communities and Indigenous Peoples Platform

- Potential Governance Arrangements Under the Paris Agreement

image of Local Communities and Indigenous Peoples Platform

Local communities and indigenous peoples (LCIPs) have been involved in the implementation of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) since 1992. In 2015, the Paris Agreement introduced a new element to strengthen LCIPs efforts to address and respond to climate change – the LCIP Platform. This report develops potential options for making the LCIP Platform operational. A facilitative working group, an expert group or a dialogue platform could enable further exchange of knowledge, promote capacity building and enhance the engagement of local communities and indigenous peoples in the UNFCCC process. Proposals provided in this report were discussed at an informal meeting held in February 2018 in Helsinki, Finland. The international meeting was attended by representatives of experts and negotiators involved in the development of the LCIP Platform.

Conclusion

The LCIP Platform governance is open to a variety of elements. This paper provides a toolkit of these elements that should enable LCIPs and Parties alike to structure their discussions around some key questions: Which function should be implemented with which element? Which elements should be set up first? What might be useful to review and implement later?
