Prenant appui sur les deux dialogues ouverts réalisés antérieurement en Éthiopie (sept. 2019) et au Chili (décembre 2019), nous tiendrons cette fois un dialogue ouvert pour l’Asie. Celui-ci aura lieu le 15 février 2020 au Novotel Golf Resort & Convention Center à Bogor, Indonésie. Le soir précédant la rencontre, nous offrirons à l’hôtel IBIS un repas végan pour les participant-e-s.

This event aims to explore the links between indigenous landscape management practices, forest conservation, agroecology, and pastoralism as alternatives to unsustainable livestock production, and as vital climate adaptation and mitigation strategies. We will also work towards building a strong network of Indigenous Peoples’ Organizations, local communities and other like-minded groups with significant representation from the Global South, in order to share views, lessons learned, and other expertise and experiences around sustainable livestock farming practices and their contributions to curbing climate change and biodiversity loss.

In addition, we will explore the current threats to traditional practices, such as China’s role in an ever-expanding export-oriented and unsustainable model of meat and diary production, and how the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) in particular is driving deforestation. The event will have a strong focus on gender, analysing the important role that women play in forest conservation and the preservation of traditional knowledge, as well as the gender-differentiated impacts and threats women face.

There will be presentations from NGO/IPO representatives from the Philippines, China, Kyrgyzstan, Sri Lanka and Indonesia, among others. Please see here for a draft agenda. Virtual participation is very much encouraged, and you can join online using this zoom link (the event starts at 09:00 Jakarta time). The conclusions and results of these dialogues will be used in advocacy work at relevant national and international events over the coming year.
