Indigenous Peoples and impacts of biofuels



Why a special category for Indigenous Peoples (IPs) here? Because this is a request of one of our members, the NCIV, who want to further explore the theme in the coming times. There will be double uploads or links to other spaces at the website, to not isolate this issue from others where indigenous peoples issues should also be represented. For a good overview of the relevance of standards for IPs see the presentation of Nina Holland during the Expert Meeting May 2009.
