  • To limit (by not consensus), we will not permit that
  • Nobody was excluded from negotiations and agreements
  • convergence and reconciliation
  • not possible only to work with governments – roped in indigenous, academics, scientists, media, businessmen, etc.

  • <2 deg C – collective responsibility demonstrated
  • significant step in the right direction, creates new form of support for countries (developing countries)

  • REDD+ mechanisms – economic resources available for indigenous communities
  • Cancun Agreements – renewed spirit of trust and cooperation – glimpse new horizons in preserving our shared planet, keeping it healthy
  • we have to reach agreement as mankind, as a planet

  • a future for future generations
