[Three Basins Summit Statement] Threats to tropical forests are growing: that is why Indigenous and community rights must be at the centre of the Three Basins initiative

Solutions to tropical deforestation have to come from within tropical forest countries. That is why we welcome greater south-south cooperation and the gathering of the Three Basins Summit in Brazzaville, from October 26 to 28.

However, we the undersigned Indigenous, environmental, human rights and other frontline organisations are writing to express our concerns over the initiative’s direction of travel, specifically the lack of attention given to impacts of extractives and other harmful industries on rainforests and to the engagement of civil society and rights-holders in the process.

While the stated aim of the summit is to preserve and restore the planet’s three great rainforest basins, new research shows in practice many countries from the three rainforest basins are in fact advancing plans that will do exactly the opposite.
