Les peuples autochtones portent la parole d'une nature et d'un climat menacés au Bourget
"Nous voulons que les dirigeants veillent à ce que survive notre terre mère", interpelle Felix Santi, représentant du peuple Quechua (Amazonie), présent à Paris, pour la COP 21. Comme lui, les peuples autochtones du monde entier souhaitent faire entendre leur voix au Bourget : leur cadre de vie est menacé et, par là, leur mode de vie, leur culture et leurs traditions. "La santé et le bien-être du peuple Inuit a toujours été lié à son environnement. Nous sommes touchés par les impacts du changement climatique sur notre culture, notre organisation sociale et économique", souligne Okalik Eegeesiak, représentant du Conseil circumpolaire inuit (ICC).
Mais les peuples autochtones sont aussi, et surtout, là pour que leur rôle soit reconnu dans la lutte contre le changement climatique. "Nous sommes les utilisateurs, mais aussi les ayants droit de la forêt, rappelle Joan Carling (Philippines), représentante des peuples autochtones aux Nations unies. Nous sommes les gardiens de la forêt et, à ce titre, nos droits coutumiers doivent être pris en compte, tout comme notre contribution à la lutte contre le changement climatique".

World Heritage Review: Special Issue Nº 77 - World Heritage and climate change
ISSN 1020-4202
EAN 3059630101776
Published: 2015
World Heritage sites are the most spectacular places on the planet, and natural sites are often crucial for sustaining biodiversity hotspots and natural habitats for endangered species. Cultural sites, masterpieces of human creativity, cities and cultural landscapes are often fragile when confronted by the effects of climate change. Published ahead of the COP21 meeting of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCC) to be held from 30 November to 11 December 2015 in Paris, France, this issue will focus on methods of adaptation and best practices for dealing with the consequences of climate change at World Heritage sites, both cultural and natural, and will also examine some recent experience in mitigating the effects of climate change for intangible heritage.
The new sites inscribed on the World Heritage List during the 39th session of the World Heritage Committee, held in Bonn (Germany) from 28 June to 8 July 2015, will also be presented.
