Human Rights: How lessons learned from the CDM can inform the design of new market mechanisms



Friday, 15 November 2012, 11:30—13:00
The National Stadium | Warsaw, Room Cracow
The CDM has come under increased criticism for failing to protect human rights, including rights to lands and resources. At this event, a number of case studies and reports will be published and several experiences with CDM projects in India and Panama will be discussed with a panel of experts.  This event will show that safeguards, grievance processes and robust stakeholder consultation rules are essential for the CDM and other mechanisms, such as REDD+.  Stay tuned for more information that will soon be published here.
