Los líderes globales deben aceptar que es crucial en la lucha contra las emisiones que el patrimonio ambiental se maneje por los indígenas

En mi natal Colombia, los nublados bosques de la Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta han sido descritos como el almacén de la concentración más importante de fauna del planeta en peligro de extinción. Estos bosques son también la tierra ancestral de los Koguis, una comunidad indígena que comprende hoy alrededor de 10,000 personas.

In my native Colombia, the cloud forests of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta have been described as holding the most important concentration of threatened wildlife on Earth. These forests are also the ancestral home of the Koguis, an indigenous group now numbering around 10,000 individuals.
