We are in COP28

Indigenous voices must be part of the international conversation on climate change and biodiversity protection. As stewards of the Amazon Sacred Headwaters bioregion, we must be heard at the UN Climate Change conference COP28 in Dubai. Our Indigenous led alliance stands united to champion the protection of Mother Nature, our Pachamama, and advocate for climate justice. Our vibrant cultures and territories, which are intertwined with nature, face unprecedented threats and we will vigorously defend our existence, territories, and cultures in benefit of all humankind.

ASHA is an Indigenous organizations representing more than 30 nationalities whose territories comprise most of the Amazon Sacred Headwaters bioregion. This alliance is uniquely positioned to deliver significant results, like advancing Indigenous stewardship and governance, protecting vast areas of high biodiversity rainforests, and catalyzing ecological transitions in both Peru and Ecuador.

We bring our ancestral wisdom to the forefront, urging global leaders to recognize the interconnectedness of climate action and indigenous rights. With urgency and unity, we call for sustainable practices that preserve our sacred land. Let our presence at COP28 amplify the vital message: the Amazon’s survival is humanity’s shared responsibility. Together, let’s safeguard our planet’s beating heart.
